St Barts Pathology Museum, University of London


History of Medicine: The Patient Experience

Professor Chris Thompson, Chief Medical Officer and Director of Public Affairs, will be hosting a Q&A session with Steve Parker for the launch of his new book "Kill or Cure"

Many know about medical history through the eyes of doctors and surgeons – but what about the poor patients? Steve traces the experiences of the same patient with headache and cough consulting the medical profession 500 years ago, 150 years ago, today – and 50 years into the future. Who would you see, what tests would they do, what were the diagnoses and recommended treatments – and would they work?

Author Steve Parker launches his new history of medicine book and there will also be a chance to purchase copies.

Entry fee includes wine and other refreshments.

Doors at 6:30pm for a prompt 7pm start, tickets can be booked online by clicking here.
