History

Surrey, like most communities in the Fraser Valley, had limited early health care. Neighbours help out neighbours in case of accident, illness or child birth. Many local women, like Mary Shannon, were very experienced in child birth and could be called to act as midwives. Serious cases or surgical cases were taken to Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster where doctor was available. Gg Fife practiced medicine in the northeast corner of Surrey from 1905 on. He was a medical doctor who had never been licensed in BC. His daughter, Mrs. Barbara Fife Booth, tells the following story of her pioneer father. In 1888, four people died as the small pox epidemic was going through the municipality. Henry T. Thrift was appointed First Health Officer of Surrey. Mr. Thrift was not a medical doctor but he was appointed to organize vaccination program that Surrey Council pay for. In 1895, council introduced Physician Aid By-Law and appointed Dr. D. Sutherland as the First Medical Health Officer in Surrey at a salary of 200. 00 year. Dr. Al Kendal was appointed to the office in 1903 and held the post until 1905. He was succeeded by Dr. Wilson Herald. Dr. Eh McEwan became Medical Health Officer in 1907 and was succeeded by Dr. Fd Sinclair in 1913. Dr. Sinclair came to Surrey in 1911, and except for a period of service during the First World War, he continued to practice in Surrey until his death in 1952. In 1940, Surrey's population was approximately 15 000. There was one doctor, Dr. Sinclair, and one VON Nurse to service the population. A rapidly expanding population has greatly increased the health care load. In 1937, Victorian Order of Nurses came to Surrey to provide much - needed nursing and home care. In January 1938, Phyllis Bond was designated First VON for Surrey. She soon begin well baby clinics throughout the municipality. In 1941, Nurse Bond left to be marry, and was succeeded by Nurse Mary Martin, and Nurse Bodley. Von Services were much in demand for caring for age, infirm and chronically ill. Nurses Clara Gould and Mrs. J. Urquhart served White Rock during the 1950s. Von staff in Surrey grew and were supported by a very active Women's Auxiliary. In the 1970s, Provincial Government policy saw private delivery of Health Care phased out. Thus, after 37 years of splendid service in home nursing care, VON was phased out. Between the World Wars, Surrey had two population focuses; Cloverdale area and White Rock District. Cloverdale had the advantage of having residing Medical Health Officer, Dr. Sinclair. In addition, by the 1940s, resident doctors had been established in Langley to whom Cloverdale residents had relatively easy access. Sparsely populated North Surrey had access to Medical Services in New Westminster. Another population focus was the White Rock District.
