Alan Julian Macbeth Tudor-Hart FRCGP FRCP (9 March 1927 – 1 July 2018), commonly known as Julian Tudor Hart, was a British doctor and politician. He worked as a general practitioner (GP) in Wales for 30 years. He was involved with research and wrote many books and scientific articles. He is best known for the inverse care law. This says:

The availability of good medical care tends to vary inversely with the need for the population served.  This inverse care law operates more completely where medical care is most exposed to market forces, and less so where such exposure is reduced.[1]

He was born in London.

He was a member of the Sigerist Society from 1947 to 1955. Hart joined the Communist Party of Great Britain and ran as the CPGB candidate for Aberavon at the 1964, 1966 and 1970 general elections.[2] He was the Honorary President of the Socialist Health Association.[3]
