Caring Newcastle: The History of Newcastle's Hospitals and Medical School Paperback
by Ken Smith
For many years, Newcastle has enjoyed a reputation as a centre for medical excellence.
From the pioneering `flying squads' that were sent out to help mothers experiencing serious problems with home births in the 1930s to Europe's first single and double lung transplants, Newcastle hospitals have been at the centre of numerous breakthroughs.
Ken Smith and Tom Yellowley trace the history of hospitals in Newcastle since Medieval times, examining their trials and triumphs and introducing some of the people behind their most inspiring successes.
Also featured is the history of Newcastle University's oldest department, its Medical School, which has trained countless doctors since it was founded in 1834 and by 1869 was the largest medical school in England outside London.
