PDF: His Majesty's General Hospital attending the Army from Canada commanded by Lieutenant-General John Burgoyne, 1777.

His Majesty's General Hospital was the military medical organization which had the final say in a department and army's medical matters. Consisting of a select hierarchy of physicians, surgeons, purveyors, apothecaries, hospital mates, supernumerary hospital mates, and other staff, the Hospital had authority over regimental surgeons and mates and often dispatched personnel to fill the medical needs of corps lacking surgeons. Located in a series of houses and / or marquees at the rear of a campaigning army, the hospital was where the worst-case wounded, injured, and sick officers and men were housed and cared for.
