[Report of the Medical Officer of Health for Acton]
Another puzzling feature of the year 1936 was an outbreak
of Scabies. This was not confined to the Borough of Acton as
was evidenced by the fact that our usual arrangements for dealing
with these cases broke down under the strain of patients sent for
treatment from other sources, and new arrangements had to be
made. Details of the cases are given in an article in the report.
The drains and sanitary conveniences at all the schools
have been periodically inspected by the Sanitary Inspector. In
3 of the schools all the drains and sanitary* fittings were satisfactory.
In the others, certain minor defects were noted and a copy of the
full report has been sent to the Director of Education, and the
matters will have the attention of the Education Committee at an
PUBLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS WITHIN THE DISTRICT WITH ACCOMMODATION.
