Medical practices tend to evolve over time. They have three key components: the building, the medics and the patients. All of these elements change over time, but not all at once, so chains of continuity tend to develop. These chains can keep going over centuries and are interesting to follow.
The main Newmarket chains identified so far are as follows (clicking on each link below leads to a page providing an overview of the chain, emphasising the connections, with links from there to more detail about the individuals and buildings/locations etc. involved):-
