It’s the turn of the 19th century. The world is on the verge of a new revolution, in just a few years from now people will leave the countryside and farming, some forever. They will flock to cities and towns seeking employment using new industrial machines. In fact, so many people will flock to towns and cities so quickly, that many towns and cities won’t be able to cope. Poverty will be rife, poor housing, poor sewage and poor quality of life will be common, if not the norm. However, this change in life style and scenery will go on to inspire a new revolution: a revolution in medicine, in health: in the space of a few short years ground-breaking discoveries will be made. Scientists and physicians will be met with opposition from all sides, but despite this in 100 years time England will be a healthier and cleaner place to live.
