Gray: The Central Middlesex Hospital 1903 - 63

£9.99

Product description

"The Central Middlesex Hospital is one of the best-known hospitals in the country. In its short life of sixty years it has developed from a Poor Law institution under a Board of Guardians into an outstanding hospital of the modern Welfare State. This rapid development was in large measure due to the far-sighted policy of the Middlesex County Council who took over the hospital under the Local Government Act of 1929. Its revolutionary grading scheme for whole-time medical staff was a prototype for the NHS. This book -- the history of a regional, in contrast to a teaching, hospital -- is a useful addition to the social history of the period."

This book is in fair condition overall. Hardbound in green cloth, the cover has some light shelf-wear but no damage. Binding tight. Pages clean, white and undamaged throughout. Dust jacket is ragged and has a large tear in the front cover, and has been backed with plastic in order to preserve it.
