Migrant Architects is the first book to assess the impact of the migration of doctors from the Indian subcontinent on postwar development of British general practice and by extension the ways in which they influenced the development of the NHS.

Migrant architects of the NHS draws on forty-five oral history interviews and extensive archival research to offer a radical reappraisal of how the National Health Service was made. It tells the story of migrant South Asian doctors who became general practitioners in the NHS. Imperial legacies, professional discrimination and an exodus of UK-trained doctors combined to direct these doctors towards work as GPs in some of the most deprived parts of the UK. In some areas, they made up over half of the general practitioner workforce. The NHS was structurally dependent on them and they shaped British society and medicine through their agency. Aimed at students and academics with interests in the history of immigration, immigration studies, the history of medicine, South Asian studies and oral history. It will also be of interest to anyone who wants to know more about how Empire and migration have contributed to making Britain what it is today.

Arvustused

'Easy to follow and highly recommended, Julian Simpson's book provides a clear and comprehensive account of this suddenly very topical slice of history, and does exactly what he set out to do - writes migrants back into the history of the NHS.' Anjna Harrar, British Journal of General Practice, August 2018 'The detailed individual narratives, and the author's meticulous historical and political analysis, offer a model for making sense of medical migration.' John Launer, Postgraduate Medical Journal 'Simpson has previously stated his desire to 'write migrant doctors back into the history of the NHS', claiming that British medical historians (unlike those in North America) have been much less attuned to the role of immigration in shaping contemporary society. He has certainly achieved that goal. This is the first full-length scholarly book to examine the contribution of migrant doctors to the NHS and, as such, constitutes an importance reconsideration of post-war British health services. [ .] the book does succeed marvellously in denationalising the NHS, by looking at health care and medical practice through a transnational lens. As such, it paves the way for other important studies of health care diasporas in Britain.' David Wright, McGill University, Social History of Medicine, Volume 32 Issue 1, February 2019 'Simpson has previously stated his desire to 'write migrant doctors back into the history of the NHS', claiming that British medical historians (unlike those in North America) have been much less attuned to the role of immigration in shaping contemporary society.
