Can't come to us? We can come to you!
Discover more about Victorian life and advancement in medical practice. Let's imagine that it is 1901 and your pupils are showing symptoms of different Victorian ailments. You obviously call for the doctor and one is able to be dispatched from Peterborough Infirmary.
Will the doctor be able to cure them? And how does the practice differ from the past and present day? Btw, fingers crossed they will be cured!
