Example text

Major organisational change of the poor law system was introduced by the Local Government Act 1929, through which the best poor law hospitals were retitled public health hospitals and became the responsibility of local authority health committees, and hence no longer part of the poor law system. However, these hospitals were almost entirely focused on the acute sick, rather than medical provision for older people, who were usually seen as chronic cases. The remaining medical provision together with other workhouse provision also ceased to be the responsibility of the 62 poor law boards, and was transferred to 145 counties and county boroughs, each of which was required to establish a public assistance committee.

A campaign emerged calling for the introduction of pocket money for inmates. Some public assistance committees developed small homes with more liberal regimes, although they were usually reserved for 'women of the more gentle type' or men of 'the merit class' (quoted in Means and Smith, 1985, p. 22). A more detailed picture of life in the medical and non-medical parts of public assistance institutions emerged during and just after the Second World War. It was a portrait of extensive neglect (Means and Smith, 1985, Chapters 2 and 3; Titrnuss, 1976).

Such concerns have appeared in official reports. For example, The Rising Tide from the Health Advisory Service (1983) explained that the number of people with dementia would rise rapidly because of the 36 Community Care growth of the very old and that 'the flood is likely to overwhelm the entire health care system' (p. 1). There are several criticisms which can be levelled at the political economy approach, although, in fairness to most of its proponents, they recognise that its value lies in providing a very broad grasp of the link between changes in the means of production and changes in public policy.
