Thomas Cammack’s life was mainly passed in his native Spalding. Educated at the local grammar school and apprenticed to a local apothecary, he returned there to practise, after studying at Guy’s and St. Thomas’s Hospitals and a short period at Manchester Royal Infirmary. By dint of hard work, more particularly among the poorer classes, he earned a reputation second to none in Spalding and its neighbourhood, both with the public and with his own profession. Cammack was physician to the Spalding Infirmary and Dispensary. He took the Erlangen degree of M.D. by residence and examination in 1834.
