About the Authors
  • Addenbrooke's Hospital has strongly influenced both the development of medical practice and the social history of Cambridge. This authoritative and absorbing account of the hospital traces in detail its history and development, from its benefaction in 1719 by John Addenbrooke, through its early years of expansion, reforms and modernisation and over the period of the two world wars. With the use of rare and previously unseen archive material, including the original minutes, the authors have produced a careful, authoritative and fascinating account of the history and development of one of Britain's most famous hospitals. Embellished with evocative and often rare documentary illustrations, this book will be of the greatest interest and value to all those associated with Addenbrooke's: clinicians, nursing and administrative staff, students and patients, as well as to anyone with an interest in the social and medical history of Cambridge.

    • Eye-catching colour cover
    • Illustrated with evocative and often rare illustrations
    • Of the greatest interest and value to all those associated with Addenbrooke's past and present
    • An absorbing and fascinating historical account
