Conisborough Hospital Board.

Mr. H. Baker presided over this meeting at the Isolation Hospital. Conisborough, yesterday

An application from the Matron (Miss C. Smith) for an increase of salary on the completion by her of 12 months’ service, led to discussion, which was closured with a resolution that the application should go on the agenda for the next meeting.

In her application the Matron said that the salary paid (£4O, with allowance for uniform) was very small, considering the size of the hospital.

The draft for including Thurnscoe in the area of the hospital was approved, and it was decided that the order be retrospective, to date from the time when Thurnscoe received its urban powers.

The Medical Superintendent (Dr. Maclure) reported that 13 cases had been admitted during the month and nine discharged.

On August 31 there were 29 cases in hospital, 22 scarlet fever, three diphtheria, and four typhoid. There were no deaths.

The Matron said everything at the hospital appeared be satisfactory.
