Alan Woodward RIP

The LSHG is very sorry to have to announce that Alan Woodward [1939-2012] died on Saturday. He had a long association with the LSHG and in due course [when we can transcribe an interview he did with Ian Birchall] - an obituary will appear. In the meantime, our sincere condolences to his family, friends and comrades.  

Edited to add: With respect to relevant material on this website, a review of Alan Woodward's edited collection The NHS at 60 can be found here, while two book reviews he wrote for the LSHG Newsletter can be found here and here.  The latter - a review of Plebs: The Lost Legacy of Independent Working Class Education in particular speaks to us today - given recent events outside Downing Street by the Tory toff Andrew Mitchell and the current destruction of archival material underway at Ruskin College, Oxford.
