Free Online Talk – Pauper Patients and the New Poor Law, 1834-1900

January 14 @ 2:00 pm GMT

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.

Paul Carter is the co-investigator and The National Archives’ lead on In Their Own Write, a major Arts and Humanities Research Council funded research project undertaken with Professor Steve King at (initially) the University of Leicester, and (now) at Nottingham Trent University.

What’s Online is a series of talks, in conversation events and webinars delivered by The National Archives’ experts and special guests. Events last approximately one hour, including an audience Q&A.

This event will be presented on Microsoft Teams.
