This two-day conference focused on understanding healthcare, and in particular hospital provision, through the prism of regionality in Britain and Ireland. Professor John Stewart, Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare, Glasgow Caledonian University, was the keynote speaker. The conference examined healthcare beyond the national and engaged with local and regional transformations with a particular emphasis on Irish, Scottish and Welsh case studies along with English regional perspectives. The uses of regionality as a conceptual tool in the examination of healthcare systems was emphasised while the importance of local economic, social and cultural circumstances in determining the delivery of medical provision was explored. The conference focused on comparative studies across regional and national boundaries and the challenges of undertaking such research.
