The General Practitioner In Industry - Harlow Pattern

1962 , Harlow (Essex)

An examination of general practice in the industrial zones of the 'new town' of Harlow, Essex.

Following the rapid transformation of Harlow after the 1946 New Towns Act, a new pattern of medical practice was initiated, featuring the provision of twenty-four hour health care through a combination of general practice and industrial medicine. Tracing the establishment of the Harlow Industrial Health Service and the work of its general practitioners across two industrial health centres, the documentary examines their role in the treatment of workplace injuries and illness, their cooperation with other public health services, and their active participation in the reduction of industrial accidents via advice and preventative medicine.
