Dressers were assistants to the surgeons of St Thomas’ Hospital. Having finished their medical training, they would still require practical experience. They would assist during operations, often having to hold the patient down on the operating table while the operation was performed. After the operation, they would dress the wound, which is how they acquired their name.
