DOCTORS' WAITING ROOMS

It is with diffidence that I write this, for I recognise the humanitarian and unselfish work all our doctors are doing for the good of all, and that since social security no doubt the consulting rooms are more overcrowded than before. It has been my unfortunate experience to attend various doctors' consulting rooms during the last few months. They were all crowded. The point I wish to make is that, almost without exception, they, including specialists were cramped, uncomfortable and mostly without neat. There were bare benches against tne walls in some cases, and perhaps a few decadent wicker chairs for tne early-comers. Some patients patiently waited outside for attention. Doctors could and should secure a more comfortable environment for their patients. Surely it is not too much to ask for a few comfortable settees, easy chairs for the very ill. and perhaps a warmed room, so tnai the patient after a prolonged wait would not feel far worse than when he ' arrived. RETURNED.
