[Report of the Medical Officer of Health for St. Pancras, London, Borough of]
In addition to this, from early in March until August there was 110 special
officer for the work relating to the Prevention of Infantile Mortality. In
consequence the work arising out of the Notification of Births Act required
my close and constant supervision for a great part of the year. I wasfortunate
in securing the help of several excellent Voluntary Visitors, who
did very useful work, but who could not fill the place of a responsible officer
or be left to work without continual guidance.
Only the more urgent matters connected with industrial premises could
receive attention, and little routine inspection in that direction was possible.
A separate report upon the subject of Consumption is submitted to you.
A table relating to industrial work is appended.
I am, Sir,
Your obedient Servant,
M. E. Bimtv,
Sanitary Inspector of Workshops (Women).
