This book was originally published in 1914, and revised following the death of its author and the changes in healthcare brought about by the Great War. This 1922 second edition forms part of a series of books on public health and hygiene designed to advise those working for the government and the medical profession. They now provide a fascinating insight into the workings of health policy prior to the introduction of a National Health Service. This book addresses the way in which infectious diseases were contained and treated, and defends the government's decision to spend a significant amount of money on isolation hospitals. Parsons and Low discuss the most advantageous designs and locations for these institutions, the containment of diseases such as small pox and tuberculosis, and the issues that arose around both the staffing of isolation hospitals and the changing provisions made for those patients affected by severe poverty.
