HEALTH CENTRES

REQUIRED IN DOMINION

N.Z. WOMAN'S WEEKLY

There seems to be a growing conviction among the general public that many patients now occupying hospital beds should not be there at all. Such people require treatment, but frequently they are suffering from ailments which could easily be treated at home. Because, however, doctors are too busy to visit such patients fairly frequently, and because often there is nobody in their homes to give them the necessary care and attention, they become hospital patients.

Plans are now being made to further the health centre scheme, and in this week's issue of the N.Z. woman's Weekly there is an article in which the writer discusses the proposal to build more clinics.

Life on Chatham Island is described in another entertaining article, and other features are entitled "Ambassador to Moscow," "Dreams," "New Zealand Mountains," "Churchill's Way of Life," and, "Wit or Humour? Which Do You Prefer?" There are also two complete short stories, while the Free Pattern Service again offers three smart designs.
