Three Hospitals in China

  • Robin A. Haig (a1)
Extract

In April 1983 I went on a medical tour of China, travelling around the People's Republic in three weeks, with compulsory stops at the Friendship Stores, and flying visits to commune hospitals, clinics, a Chinese Medicine hospital, and a Chinese Medicine factory. The psychiatrists on the tour were interested in visits to the Shanghai Psychiatric Hospital, the Neuropsychiatric Department of the Beijing Capital Hospital and the Hangzhau Railway Workers' Sanitarium.
