The opinion that adequate provision should be made in the plans for the new central hospital in Auckland for the organised care of cancer patients, was expressed by Sir Ernest Davis, president of the Auckland branch of the British Empire Cancer Campaign Society, in his report to the 15th annual meeting last night.

Though the society's consultation committee had received every consideration from the Hospital Board, Sir Ernest said it was felt that a special department would be of great advantage to the profession and the public. *It was to be hoped that circumstances would afford the Hospital Board the opportunity of carrying the plan into effect, said Sir Ernest. The board had a heavy responsibility in the re-organisation of hospitals and it was evident to the committee that it was necessary to have both additional accommodation and staff.

Sir Ernest said the activities of the consultation committee had shown a steady increase in the number of cancer patients who presented themselves for treatment, and the publicity given to the work of the society had valuable results, though additional work had been thrown on to it.

Tribute was paid, by Sir Ernest to the work of Mrs. K. Gordon, a member of the society since its .inception, who tendered her resignation as vicepresident. Mr. W. Goodfellow was elected to the vacancy, and Sir Ernest was re-elected president.
