Abstract:
The history of the English hospital in the first half of the twentieth century has been the focus of considerable debate from the very beginning of the National Health Service. In the early post-war years a powerful image was built up of the mix of voluntary and local state provision as one characterized by restricted access, over-weaning charity, stigma and inadequate coverage. Hospital services were undemocratic, inefficient, underfinanced and uncoordinated, staggering from one crisis to another yet unable to help themselves due to professional and political rivalries, which prevented rationalization. However, recent years have seen the development of a more thorough hospital history for the interwar period which provides an increasingly nuanced approach to the pre-NHS system.
