Will Pickles of Wensleydale : The Life of a Country Doctor

£4.99

Product description

Hardback. Brown cloth covered book. Dust jacket is present, has small rips/tears and staining. Page edges have foxing. Black & white photographs throughout.

Published by Geoffrey Bles originally in 1970, this edition was issued by the Country Book Club for members of the Readers Union Group 1972.


John Pemberton: In 1946 he was appointed senior lecturer in Sheffield and started to teach social medicine. His research encompassed the study of the health of the elderly at home, illness in general practice (which was probably the first description of the work of GPs) and socio-medical studies of hospital patients and student health. His fascination with the work of GPs was reinforced by acting as a locum to Will Pickles in Wensleydale, North Yorkshire, in his holidays. Pickles was the most eminent GP-epidemiologist and the founder-president of the Royal College of General Practitioners. This led to John writing a biography of his friend, Will Pickles of Wensleydale: The Life of a Country Doctor (1970).
