It became common for doctors to move into Llandrindod for the season, as it was such a popular holiday resort, and then move back to London out of the main holiday season, or even work on cruise ships!
Doctors in town attended their patients in surgeries but home visits were made on horseback, sometimes in carriages, with relief horses being provided to cover outlying villages and farms.
Dr Roberts was a physician and surgeon and medical officer of health:
