The work of the year 1910 was extremely difficult. The number of
Consumption Notifications was large, and there was much to be done with
regard to the general organisation of the subject, more particularly in
promoting the necessary co-operation of various useful agencies.
Investigations into outbreaks of measles among school children and visits
in connection with the cleansing of children occupied much time.
