Presentation of books to the Library at St Richard’s Hospital, Chichester in 2007.


Patrick Pead’s most recent book in the library 

“An addition to the library  is “Benjamin Jesty, Grandfather of Vaccination” by WSHOMS Committee Member Patrick Pead. This was the subject of the last talk of the WSHOMS 2016 season on Saturday 9th December. Both the talk and the book are inspirational and show what good research may achieve with hard work, persistance and the support of one’s family”
