Tax included.
An eighteenth century pioneer of jabs against smallpox; a great reformer in the often brutal treatment of mental illness; an amateur GP who gave away free pills to the poor. They were all prominent doctors in Bristol 200 years ago - and all were Quakers.

These religious dissenters formed a tiny and repressed minority in the city’s population, yet flourished in medicine.
