London, United Kingdom

50 minutesMobile & paper tickets accepted

In the 18th century the only health care provided in Bloomsbury was the Foundling Hospital, one of the most magnificent buildings in London. Soon after, this small area of London attracted reformers who changed health care in fundamental ways that shape today's services. Exploring with Nick Black, a leading expert on health care, you will see the first hospital for children in England, the only hospital for Italians, the first hospital established by nurses, the first hospital for those paralysed and epileptic, and the medical school created by and for women who were otherwise excluded from such a career. While Bloomsbury is rightly recognised as the home of radical changes in literature, art and penal reform, it was also a cradle of reform for health care. The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.
