Tredegar Medical Aid Society

*

Really interesting to learn that the NHS was part inspired by the Tredegar Medical Aid Society (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tredegar_Medical_Aid_Society).

It was a mutual society providing health care free at the point of use in South Wales. Nye Bevan, who spearheaded the foundation of the NHS, was from Tredegar.
