Abstract

Abstract The face of British medicine has greatly altered, but the medical profession as a whole has never been more active. Harley Street is empty and the consultants are widely scattered. Yet in spite of the scars which were left after the battle of Britain, life in London goes on calmly and in its normal channels, for the most part. The administrative center for medical affairs is here, including the headquarters of the Medical Services, the Ministry of Health and the Medical Research Council. The Royal Society and the Royal Society of Medicine are active in various ways. The Royal College of Surgeons, although its priceless Hunterian collection is gone, carries on vigorously. All this illustrates the practical futility of indiscriminate bombing. In the reorganization of British medicine the Emergency Medical Service (E. M. S.) has played the most important role. The details of this organization may be discussed, for they References 1. Zuckerman, S.: Experimental Study of Blast Injuries to Lungs , Lancet 2:219 ( (Aug. 24) ) 1940.Crossref 2. Russell, D.
