‘Lessons from medical history? Dealing with demand in some 19th-century towns'

As nineteenth-century British towns grew, they established new health institutions, mostly using charitable funding. From about mid-century, there were sharp increases in numbers attending for treatment. The presentation will explore the nature and consequences of increased demand in two large Midland towns. In the 1860s at the Birmingham General Dispensary, the increasing workload sparked conflict between medical staff and lay governors. In Coventry, the local Provident Dispensary was the major local provider, and was also affected by rising demand. The associated tensions in the 1870s between medical staff and other groups will be addressed, together with other institutional and professional responses.
