West Sussex History of Medicine Society – All Posts
Each Autumn for the last few years I have attended the WSHOMS lectures at St Richards Hospital. This is an august gathering of over one hundred local doctors, practising and retired, who come to listen to the Saturday morning lectures delivered by different guest speakers each weak. The subject matter is eclectic but every talk brings to light some fascinating aspect of medical history: Churchill’s doctor, Stretcher bearers in the first world war, or early attempts to cure scurvy.
After writing about one of these lectures on my blog I was invited to be the official WSHOMs blogger!
