ABSTRACT

This book prepared for the bicentenary of the Worcester Royal Infirmary commemorates the founding of the hospital in 1746. It is an absorbing story of an institution which, founded in the spirit of charity, has rendered unselfish service to the people of its community for two hundred years under the traditional system of voluntary support. Authoritative and rich in illustrations, the book recounts the early days of the hospital, its gradual growth and development and eventual expansion into the'modern hospital service which characterizes the present era. Interspersed with the hospital events which flow as the central theme is a wealth of material on administrative problems, the changing pattern of nursing service and the growth of medical practice, ethical relationships, early differentiation in medicine and surgery and the formation in 1732 of the Provincial Medical and Surgical Association, which in turn became the British Medical Association.
