A fascinating guide to medical London, Walking London's Medical History contains seven guided walks around London that focus on the rich medical history surrounding each area. Each walk is centred around a medical theme. History and past events are bought to life as sex, murder and intrigue mingle with medical events and figures in by-gone times. This is London at its most graphic, not only are readers taken on a journey into the past but they are given an extended and detailed tour around the area. Linking together past and contemporary events in healthcare, the reader is able to familiarise themselves with the developments of medicine through the ages. Packed full of curious and surprising facts about medicine and beautifully illustrated with maps, photographs and images, and with a foreword written by bestselling author Peter Ackroyd, this is the perfect guide book for anyone with a passion for urban walks, the history of London and, of course, medicine. 'Walks you'll actually want to go on.' Tom Lamont, Editor, Time Out: London for Londoners 'Anyone interested in [London's] unwholesome and insalubrious past will wish to read this book.' Peter Ackroyd, bestselling author of London: The Biography Winner of first prize in the basis of medicine category, BMA Medical Book Competition, 2007
