Professor Barry Doyle, lecturer in the School of Music, Humanities and Media at the University of Huddersfield, has published a new book looking at the politics behind hospital provision in the early twentieth-century.

Doyle examines the role of local and national politics on hospitals. In the years before the formation of the Welfare State, access to hospital care was limited by economic and social factors which varied from place to place. Ultimately, Doyle argues that social and economic diversity created a number of models for future health care which rested on a combination of voluntary and municipal provision.
