Black reveals a little known aspects of the capital's past in a manner both informative and fun, accessible whether you have a medical background or not. Walks you'll actually want to go on.' Tom Lamont, Editor, Time Out: London for Londoners

Summary This fascinating guide tells the story of health care development from medieval times to the present day through seven walks in central London, each with a key theme. By visiting former health care buildings where events unfolded, many now converted into hotels, offices, homes and shops, you can transport yourself back in time and at the same time gain an understanding of the continuing challenges that we face to improve modern health care.

Target Market Medics and other health care professionals with an interest in medical history based in, or visiting, London and those studying courses in medical history and humanities.
