Discover the drastically different health and welfare services available to the poor in Victorian society.

How did the sick alert local poor law medical officers of their needs, and what services were they entitled to?

Did the poor and their families have a right to medical care, and what happened when their expectations of such rights were not reached?

Join Paul Carter as he delves into Victorian welfares services, more specifically the health service of the time, and provides a fascinating insight into the medical care available to the poor.
