Hospitals and dispensaries: a bibliography

This is a list of books, articles and theses about general hospitals, specialist infirmaries, and public dispensaries established in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The list does not include mental hospitals or asylums. Entries are arranged by historic English county with sections on Scotland and Wales at the end. Ireland is not covered. If you are aware of any relevant histories (particularly university theses or articles in local history journals) which are missing from this list, please send details to historydch@aol.com. Please also make contact if you notice any errors. The sections on London, Scotland and Wales are probably the least complete at the moment. Also, there appears to be no material for Buckinghamshire. An updated list will be published in due course – please let me know if you wish to be alerted to its availability.

This list has been prepared as part of the History of Dorset County Hospital website (www.historydch.com). The site has material on a number of other hospitals, not just those in Dorset.

Cover illustration: The medical officers and staff, North Devon Infirmary, Barnstaple, early nineteenth century.
