    This website (http://www.localhistories.org/medicine.html) seems to have information, such as about John Hunter who did sort of start surgery as we know it today.
    The Industrial Revolution might have also had an impact?
    I'm not sure though, hope this helps ☺️

    I did the history of medicine exam this year (June) and used these notes: http://www.revisegcsehistory.co.uk/d...ugh%20Time.pdf

    I understand the syllabus/structure has changed a bit but this has info on carbolic acid and vaccinations if I remember correctly.

    For a point of your own you could do another individual such as Semmelweiss perhaps?
