Described by Graham as an “excellent man who took great pains in his duties towards the sick.

Surgeon James Young of HMS Lion said of Mr Jamieson:

The marines had been disembarked and were doing duty on shore for some time, they had suffered materially from sickness particularly for want of medicine and a properly regulated hospital – indeed it was disgraceful to see that a squadron frequently consisting of seven and eight sail of the Line with smaller ships, had no proper establishment for their sick on shore, while the moment a couple of regiments arrived a superb hospital with every necessary convenience and luxury was immediately provided and to the humane attention of Dr Jamieson, I am indebted for his reception and care of some of my wounded men after the action with the French Republican ship of war Le Guillaume Tell, on 30 March 1800.
