Charles Dickens's expert eye for detail enabled him to describe many medical conditions in his writings. He supported hospitals, children's welfare, public health and the rehabilitation of prostitutes. Through his Journals and lectures he was able to reach out to the population at large and campaign on all of these issues. Dickens also suffered with a number of medical conditions which will be discussed in detail during the lecture.
