Pioneer Health Centre

Located at Peckham, south-east London. Set up to conduct a large-scale experiment into preventative rater than curative health. Nine hundred and fifty families signed up to be part of 'the Peckham Experiment'. For one shilling a week, they relaxed in a club-like atmosphere: physical exercise, games, workshops, or even simple relaxation were all encouraged. All the time they were observed by Williamson & Pearse, and their team of doctors. The number of internal walls was kept to a minimum, so doctors could observe patients at play.
