In all, at the end of the year, there were 19 registered homes, with
183 beds, about half of these being for maternity and the other half for
other patients.
1. General.
No change occurred in the arrangements for nursing in the home.
The staff of the Greater Harrow District Nursing Association working
from two homes, Warnford, in Bessborough Road, and one in Uppingham
Avenue, covered most of the district with a general nursing but not a
midwifery service. The staff of the Pinner and Hatch End Nursing
Association provided a maternity and a nursing service for Pinner, and
a nursing service for Hatch End. The Edgware and Little Stanmore
Nursing Association maintained a general-trained nurse in that area,
and the Watling District Nursing Association operating from Hendon
provided a midwifery and a nursing service for part of the eastern area
of the district.
Under the new arrangements the administration of the home
nursing service for the district will be the responsibility of the Area
2. Midwifery and Maternity Nursing.
