Your Council decided to continue the grant to the Walthamstow
District Nursing Association, in return for which the Association
was, amongst other services, required to provide home nursing
facilities for cases of pneumonia.
Bacteriological examination of sputum and typing is available
through the medium of the excellent laboratory service provided by
the Essex County Council.
The local practice is for the District Sanitary Inspector to visit
on receipt of a notification and to make the necessary inquiries.
A leaflet of advice is left at the house, and opportunity is taken to
deal with any obvious defect in sanitation which may be found.
