Structural alterations at Mayesbrook Clinic
have reduced the space available for orthopaedic
exercises, but this has been made up for by modified
arrangements. The wall mirror suffered
breakage in the course of the alterations and needs
replacing.
Attendance at the Clinic was satisfactory,
and the arrangements were much the same as in past
years. Hospital admissions went to East Ham
Memorial Hospital, X-ray examinations were carried
out at Chadwell Heath Hospital. Mr. Rogers, who
had been attending as fitter for surgical appliances,
resigned from the firm of Messrs. Pryor and Howard
during the year. His place has been taken by Mr.
Daniels, of the same firm.
Mr. Brand, M.C.S.P. was, as always, the
backbone of these Clinics. I wish to thank him and
all the others who helped in the running of the Clinic
for their untiring efforts."
