On the waterworks at Goldstone Bottom, Brighton, by W. Whitaker, published April 1886 in Geological Magazine (vol. 3, issue 4, article, pp.159-161)   View Online
Abstract:
These works were at first only supplementary to the Lewes Road Works, on the east; but now are the chief source of supply. They were begun in 1865, and are placed in a hollow in the Chalk, in open ground. at the north-western edge of Brighton. This hollow, the bottom of which, I am told, is 30 feet below the lowest part of its rim, is perhaps in itself an evidence of the existence of underground water, being due, most likely, as is usually the case in limestone-districts, to the dissolving away of the rock by underground water and to the consequent sinking-in of the surface. It is an analogous occurrence to the Meres of Norfolk, except that these are generally more or less filled with water, whilst Goldstone Bottom is quite dry at the surface. I may mention that at the time of my visit there was so thick a fog that it was impossible to see the hollow.

Cancer screening in East Sussex, by W. J. Wigfield, published January 1976 in Public Health (vol. 90, issue 2, article, pp.65-73)
Abstract:
This paper examines what has been achieved in East Sussex since cancer screening started in 1966. The statistics for registered cases of carcinoma of breast and of cervix have been analysed, and related to the work of the cancer screening clinics. The incidence of both diseases is falling, but this is not due to screening. More early cases of breast cancer, and fewer late cases, are now being found but this is not so with cervical cancer. The mass screening of symptomless women at special screening clinics is no longer economic.

A survey of the prevalence and treatment of asthma and hay fever in a small town in East Sussex, by Sonya Leff, published July 1986 in Public Health (vol. 100, issue 4, article, pp.205-207)
Abstract:
Concern had been expressed by teachers and parents about a seemingly high incidence of asthma and hayfever amongst school children, and about the numbers of children using inhaled antispasmodics during the school day in Seaford. A twelve month survey was undertaken which showed an incidence reflecting the findings of the National Child Development Study (NCDS). It is suggested that the effectiveness of inhaled antispasmodics has resulted in more asthmatic children being educated in ordinary schools rather than in those for the physically delicate.

Typhoid in Worthing in 'Fever Year', 1893, by J. Virgoe, published August 2006 in The Local Historian (vol. 36, no. 3, article, pp.163-174) accessible at: British Library   View Online
Abstract:
This article is a case-study of a public health crisis which affected an ostensibly 'safe' and-according to its own publicity-notably healthy seaside resort in the late Victorian period. John Virgoe describes the outbreak, progress and impact of the epidemic of typhoid during the summer of 1893, and then goes on to consider its consequences for a town which depended so heavily on the visitor trade (its motto is 'Ex Terra Copiam E Mari Salutem': 'from the land, plenty, from the sea, health'). A substantial section of the discussion focuses on arguments about the responsibility for the outbreak, including the hotly-debated issue of polluted water supply. This was a particularly severe outbreak, with 186 deaths, and some 7.5 per cent of the population being affected, and yet despite two official and contradictory reports a definitive explanation of the origins of the epidemic was never provided. Virgoe demonstrates how vested interests played a part in 'shaping' the news coverage of the outbreak-the town council was desperate to play down the scale of the problem-and also shows the process (a combination of logical reasoning and guesswork) by which the medical investigations were carried out. He includes an assessment of the costs of the epidemic, financial and social, and concludes with consideration of the relative significance of this outbreak compared with other better-known events elsewhere.

A terrible toll of life: the impact of the 'Spanish Influenza' epidemic on Brighton 1918-19, by Jaime Kaminski, published 2009 in Sussex Archæological Collections (vol. 147, article, pp.193-210) accessible at: W.S.R.O. [Lib 17254] & The Keep [LIB/500365] & S.A.S. library   View Online
Abstract:
In 1918-19 Brighton was hit by three waves of the 'Spanish influenza' pandemic. A comparatively mild outbreak in July and early August 1918 was followed in October and November by a devastating and lethal outbreak. The epidemic culminated in a less deadly recrudescence in February and March 1919. As with much of Britain, the Brighton press generally played down the magnitude of the epidemic. But the high morbidity caused both social and economic disruption. This article considers how Brighton was affected by the pandemic and how the local authorities responded.

Health in the Urban Environment: A Qualitative Review of the Brighton and Hove W.H.O. Healthy City Program, by C. Hall, J. K. Davies and N. Sherriff, published 2010 in Journal of urban health: bulletin of the New York Academy of Medicine (vol. 87, no. 1, article, pp.8-28)
Abstract:
Phase IV of the W.H.O. European Region's Healthy Cities Program ended in December 2008. This article presents the findings from a recently completed review of Brighton and Hove's Healthy City Program which aimed to scope whether added value had accrued from the city's role as a W.H.O. Healthy City during phase IV. In contrast to most other evaluations of healthy cities, this review adopted a qualitative approach representing an appraisal of the Brighton and Hove Healthy City Program from the internal viewpoint of its local stakeholders. In addition to documentary analysis and a facilitated workshop, a series of in-depth interviews were conducted with stakeholders from the Brighton and Hove Healthy City Partnership representing each of the sectors reflected in the Local Strategic Partnership (public, statutory, elected, community and voluntary, neighborhood and communities, business). The key findings of the review are presented in a way which reflects the three key areas of the review including (1) the healthy cities approach, (2) participation in phase IV of the W.H.O. Healthy Cities Program, and (3) the Brighton and Hove Healthy City Partnership. These findings are discussed, and recommendations for action at local, national, and European levels are proposed. In particular, we argue that there is an urgent need to develop a suitable monitoring and evaluation system for the W.H.O. Healthy Cities Program with appropriate indicators that are meaningful and relevant to local stakeholders. Moreover, it would be important for any such system to capitalize on the benefits that qualitative methodologies can offer alongside more traditional quantitative indicators.

l am pretty sure that every reader will have at least one ancestor or close relative of an ancestor whose death certificate gives the cause of death as phthisis, or as we know it now tuberculosis. Our ancestors would probably have named it, if they dared acknowledge it, consumption. This little story is surely one which was replicated in many other families in the 19th century.
Lucy STALLARD was born Lucy TRIMMER and baptised in Harting parish church on 9 February 1835. Her parents were Peter TRIMMER (1789-1855) (my great-great-grandmother's cousin) and Ann EAMES (1789-1876). Lucy grew up in the village situated on the Hampshire border, the youngest of nine children. Her father was an agricultural labourer. Like many girls from the village she went into domestic service, and at the age of 16 as the 1851 census shows she was working as a domestic servant to the widowed Richard HEASEY, of Manor Farm, Greatham. This Greatham was not the one near Pulborough, but about seven miles north from Harting over the Hampshire border, east from Alton. Another domestic servant Jane HARRIS (born BOOKER) a 26-year-old widow also came from Harting. Perhaps Lucy got her position through Jane.

Harriet TORRANCE was the aunt (by marriage) of my connection, Ughtred TORRANCE. Until the launch of the British Newspaper Archive, she was just a name on a census return, but thanks to the publication of the Hastings and St Leonard Observer, I have learnt so much more about the sad, but eventful life of the woman who was dubbed 'The Hastings Plague'.

Delay in disclosure about sexual orientation to health-care professionals among men who have sex with men in Brighton, UK: a qualitative analysis, by Tom Nadarzynski, M.Sc., Prof Helen Smith, Ph.D., Daniel Richardson, F.R.C.P., Anja Berglund, Sarah Hurst and Carrie Llewellyn, published November 2015 in The Lancet (vol. 386, article)   View Online
Abstract:
Men who have sex with men (MSM) are at risk of poor sexual health and can benefit from preventive health interventions, such as vaccination and screening. For these interventions to be most effective, it is crucial that men can openly discuss same-sex sexual behaviours with health-care professionals at the beginning of their sexual activity. This study aimed to explore the barriers and facilitators to disclosure of sexual orientation among MSM.
