RETURNING TO N.Z.
50,000 ARMY PERSONNEL DOCTORS' SERVICES SOUGHT "The immediate demobilisation of the Air Force will entail our being called upon to board over 1000 a week of their personnel in the immediate future," stated Dr. J. Hardie Neil, Regional Deputy, Areas 1 and 3, in a letter dated August 6. which came before the Auckland Hospital Board last evening. "The Army are returning 50,000 to New Zealand forthwith,, of which 10,000 will be the Auckland Area 1 quota. We have two medical men who have been active on our boards assigned to overseas service. Owing to the extreme shortage of competent medical officers for boarding purposes, we wguld be indebted to you if you could allow members of your full-time staff when not on duty to give us assistance, practically only at night time," stated the letter. The board decided to inform the Regional Deputy it regretted it was unable to accede to his request, and that it considered the Army should be able to obtain an adequate number of medical men without calling on the board for assistance.
