A Trio of Resignations

The monthly meeting of the Doncaster and Mexborough Joint Hospital Board was held in the Isolation Hospital, Conisbrough, yesterday (Thursday) afternoon, Mr R Snow, C.C.presiding.

The resignation of three nurses, who are leaving to take up poles in larger institutions, were accepted, and the Clerk was instructed to advertise for successors.
It was reported that the extensions to the hospital premises were now completed, and that the contractor will be leaving today (Friday)

The report of the medical officer (Dr J McClure) sure that the epidemic of fever was abating, there been eight cases fewer this month. The decrease was marked in Mexborough, but not quite so pronounced in Denaby.

Contract for the supply of coal for next four months were considered and the tender of the Dalton Main colliery at 12s 4d per ton was accepted.

Mr Sewell (Mexico) brought forward the question of making some provision for the parents and friends when visiting the patients. At present, he said, they had to stand so far away from the windows that in many cases they could not recognise the faces of the children, and he suggested that another fence erected within the gates about 15 yards from the window.
After some discussion it was decided to leave the matter in abeyance until the next meeting.
