During the first year of the 1899-1902 Anglo-Boer War many doctors and patients arrived in Bloemfontein. One of these, Lord Denman, a grateful patient, donated an instrument cupboard to the Volks Hospital which survives to this day. In the later years of the war, Dr George Pratt Yule founded the Orange River Colony Medical Society, which eventually led, by a very roundabout route, to the founding of the Medical Association of South Africa, while Ella Scarlett became the first woman medical practitioner in the Free State.
