That is such a good answer - I had absolutely no clue lol so I asked about the numbers of stretcher bearers and use RAP and RAMC records to follow it up

no for 16 marker u can either just pick one side or you can do agree and disagree
i think its easier to keep a line of reasoning if you just pick one side

Here’s what I did.
For western front:
Q1 4 marker - I did trench foot and lead to swollen and infected feet
- I did do trench fever but copulent remeber the effects of the lice so I draw a line to the bottom. and said PTSD and the psychology impacts, however I purposely left the trench fever there with just an X to the side of it so basically examiners will look at both.

Q2 source A - I said it was useful however it may not be as he’s righting to his family so he may leave out the brutal events of being a stretched bearer
Source b - i said it was slightly useful as it’s a painting for the museum so he may edit it a bit to make them seem more honourable and brave as it’s going into a museum

Q2b - focuses on ‘there was not enough men to carry them’
- I asked ‘why is there a low amount of stretcher bearers?
- I looked at army records to show how many stretchers bearers they’re are in the army
- this helped as it allowed me to see if stretcher bearers found it difficult to do their work due to low amount of people and maybe their work is dangerous and many casualties and that’s why theirs a low amount.

Medicine:

Q3 - I said miasma was Dominant theory in 1700-1800 and in 1850-present that heridatory disease was the cause of illnesses found from DNA structure

Q4 - Use of dissection pioneered by Harvey and Versailles
- syndehams new approach to observing and curing the disease not the person
- printing press and added in royal society a bit. I printing press led to the most improvements
- in the conc I summarises all of this with the change to humanism - scientific reasoning instead of supernatural

Q6 - Publich health act was the first time the government changed from the laissez-fairs attitude and the first time the government got involved in public health. (I was struggling to think of stuff here so kinda waffled I think)

EDIT: I remember now, I didn’t waffle, I put that it led to the national insurance act of 1911 and housing act proving health insurance for workers and 240,000 homes for workers. (I couldn’t remeber any of the other legislation so I just put that but there was more between 1911-1948).


- NHS the biggest reason to support the statement as it provided treatment aswell as lots of research which led to human genome project, however there was a limitation as due to the low wages now paid to doctors, many of the brightest doctors had left

- I then disagreed and said preventing was more important due to the case study of lung cancer and the legislation in place however this didn’t have a major impact due to people still smoking and finding new things like weed which is worse and was counterproductive.

If I messed up at all, then tell me where please

Did anybody else do question 6?

For agree I said because of the NHS 1948, NHS Act of 1942, referenced the Beveridge Report and the Public Health Act 1875... I’m kinda debating with some people as some people are saying that should be disagree? ph act eradicated cholera, surely that is a government act to improving public health.

For disagree I was waffling, I said because of the recommendation to stop tobacco products advertising in 1962 and smoking in public places being banned in 2007, showing that is not care or treatment but it is a prevention.
Second disagree I said how the government funded Edward Jenner and all the government did was implement their money, not carrying out any actions themselves despite making vaccination compulsory in 1853 however I argued that and tried to manipulate that it was the work of Jenner as opposed to the government. lol
NHS is definitely an agree, but public health act I said is a disagree, because it didn’t cure cholera it just prevented people from actually getting it in the first place. But I feel like perhaps that one can be argued two ways, so hopefully Mark scheme reflects this

yeah i just wrote that it reduced the amount of diseases people such as cholera, now that i think about it it sound like prevention but im not too worried about that because i rationalised it and added loads of my own info

I think it depends how you argued it, if you talked more about the reduce of diseases then ye it would be prevention, but if you focused more on how they provided care such as appointing a medical officer and now that the government cares more about us now, it can agree.
i could see a lot of people saying both agree and disagree for that, so I don’t see them being harsh on that.

For the 4 marker I put miasma but then Pasteur proved it wrong in 1861. Now we believe it's microbes in the air that cause disease and infection. We don't use sponatenous generation. I didn't mention DNA or anything because I ran out of time. Will it still be okay?

Yeah! I feel like it depends how it was manipulated. I can see how it’s prevention, but surely is applicable to agree because the act provided clean drinking water and the disposal of sewage water. This in itself began the eradication of cholera, thus improving public health of the people. You could probably go as far as saying it was a form of care for the people if your justification was good enough.

Was question 5:
"Medical care and treatment was ineffective in years c1250-c1500, because of the medical knowledge of Galen's ideas"
How far do you agree?

Was it those words??
