George Stanley Sharp grew up in Tasmania and trained at the Dunedin School of Medicine. He was the Featherston community's well loved family doctor from 1926 until he retired in 1948.

He served at Gallipoli and in France, and completed his training after the war. He bought the Featherston general practice in 1926. George Sharp and his wife Myrtle, an experienced nurse, ran a small hospital alongside the practice, raised a family and enjoyed their life and active involvement in the Featherston community. During the Second World War he was appointed Senior Medical Officer for the Japanese
