Under the Skin
Inspired by ten giants of healthcare and social policy: Jenner, Cadwaladr, Osler, Lloyd-George, Bevan, Tudor-Hart, Berwick, Christensen, Cochrane, and Osier, consultant dermatologist Alex Anstey tells how he and his team transformed NHS dermatology services.
In Under the Skin, Anstey explains why these ten individuals are so important, highlighting how their mammoth contributions still resonate in the post-Covid era. And, ultimately, how these ten forbearers helped to create an institution which defines Britain to this day.
This insider’s story of the realities of front-line NHS clinical services during ten years of underfunding takes the reader on a fast-moving and emotional journey of discovery; from despondency to hope and towards a better understanding of the NHS, and emphasises the need to nurture and support those who dedicate their lives to this great institution.
