Homoeopathy in Bristol, 1840 - 1925
Homoeopathy was as controversial in the nineteenth century as it is today, but it flourished in Bristol alongside conventional medicine.
Here Dr Whitfield tells the story of Bristol’s homoeopathic practitioners up to 1925 when the opening of the Homoeopathic Hospital set the seal upon their endeavours.
