Medical Police





Crime, Medical Treatment, Education, Medical Practitioners

    Notes cases of police officers removing apparently intoxicated people to police stations when they should have been taken to hospital because they were really apoplectic and insensible. Regrets that police officers do not have 'medical knowledge', but suggests that if medical practitioners could fulfil roles as policemen then this would reduce the financial burden of providing salaries for medically trained men wanting to practice as doctors.
