Carry On Doctor (1967) is the fifteenth film in the "Carry On" series. It has been described as the best of the four Carry On films set in a hospital.

Plot summary

After an injured conman is admitted to the hospital, a well-liked doctor is sacked from his job for apparently leering over a sunbathing nurse, when really the whole incident of his sacking was conspired by the universally detested Dr. Tinkle and his ghastly matron. The rebellious patients decide to exact revenge upon the doctor and matron for what they have done.


  • The exterior shots of the hospital are actually of Maidenhead (in Berkshire, England) Town Hall.
  • The portrait hanging over one of the doors is that of Sir Lancelot interpreted by James Robertson Justice in the rival series "Doctor", produced by Peter Rogers' wife, Betty E. Box.
  • Contains a sly reference to Carry On Nurse (1959), specifically the daffodil thermometer scene. When a nurse approaches Francis Bigger with a daffodil, he says, "Oh no you don't! I saw that film!"
  • The film is entitled in Québec L'hôpital en folie meaning The messed-up hospital.
