[Free eBook] A Doctor’s Story: Life in the early years of the NHS by Ann Dally [1950s-1970s Medical History Memoir]

A Doctor’s Story: Life in the early years of the NHS by the late English author Ann Dally, a psychiatrist turned medical historian, is her autobiographical medical professional memoir cum history of the NHS, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press.

This was originally published in 1990 by Macmillan.

This career-retrospective memoir is also a part-history of the early National Health Service in Britain, recounting the experiences of the author in the 1950s-1970s as she trained to become a doctor and also juggled raising a family at a time when it was considered nearly impossible for a woman to have both, as well as her observations on the treatment of her psychiatric patients—many of whom were heroin addicts whom she felt were poorly served by detrimental NHS policies which she fought to have changed.

Offered worldwide, available at Amazon.
