Report 6 Oct 09

For the first meeting of this our 33rd season we were delighted to have as our speaker Dr. A.Day, former Chairman of the Harrogate Hospital Trust.

Dr.Day gave us a fascinating insight into The NHS: Past, Present and Future. Starting with the Pre NHS days of A.J.Cronin, through the National Health Insurance Scheme of 1924 with its doctor’s panels and Miners’ Welfare Institutes etc. to the 1942 Beveridge Report and the realisation of the NHS as we know it today.
