Dr Hamilton Moffatt
Dr Hamilton Moffatt (2013174)
Dr Hamilton Moffatt, one of the iconic medical figures of Aberama who took over his uncle’s practice and had surgeries in Glamorgan Street, Aberaman; John Street, Abercwmboi; and Dean Street, Aberdare. He always came out to calls – no matter what time of day or night - and very often still in his pyjamas concealed only by an overcoat. I know that in Tai Cement, if he was called out during the day, he would also pop in to see others who had recently been ill – just to check up on them and to see how they were doing. In the early days of the Second World War, on weekends, he would take letters back and forth for the families of the local lads (including my Dad) garrisoned at Brecon.

doctor's surgery (2013439)
This photo (modified from a copy in Aberdare Library), showing Dr. J. F. O’Connell’s surgery, Glamorgan Street, was taken in 1984, just before it was demolished for the new housing development in that area. Dr. O’Connell shared the surgery with Dr. Moffatt (who lived in the house in front, on Cardiff Road, with his wife Nora). They also held surgeries in Dean Street, Aberdare, and a morning surgery in John Street, Abercwmboi. Dr. O’Connell died in the surgery in Glamorgan Street. (photo by D. Workman - blurb: Geral)
