About this item
Slight yellow staining to two of the first pages, rest of book is in fine clean condition. Dust jacket has been coved in loose clear plastic and is in fine condition.
When in 1832 Hastings founded an association in Worcester composed of provincial medical practitioners, he little imagined that it would grow to its present size and importance. out of his small band of faithful associates has emerged the British Medical Association which alone of our great medical corporations provides a professional and scientific forum for all categories of doctor.
It seems only fitting that what little is known about the founder should be collected together and woven into the story of the early days of the Association.
The following account of his life and personality together with some remarks on his contemporaries in the field of medicine is an elaboration of the first Sir Charles Hastings Memorial Lecture, delivered on the occasion of the Worcester Festival on Wednesday, 30th May 1951. It is written primarily for the medical reader that he may pause to honour the small and unassuming bank of mostly isolated provincial doctors who, by founding the Association, did so much to improve the standing of the profession.
