The neurologists

The culture of British medicine had changed after World War I. Medicine was slowly becoming more centralised in both governance by the British state but also in the local organisation of hospital practice. Medicine had also become more technologically complex. Moreover, the specialist, especially to young aspirant doctors, appeared an ever more reasonable figure. For these reasons and others, much about interwar British culture emerges to us through an international perspective, and this is especially true of British neurology in the interwar period.
