Nature volume 143, page 717 (29 April 1939) | Download Citation



A BOOKLET entitled “The School Health Services: their Initiation, Growth and Character” has been issued by the National Union of Teachers, Hamilton House, Mabledon Place, London, W.C.I. It is a review by the Union designed to show how the school health services came into being, how they have developed, and what part the National Union has taken in their initiation, conduct and progress. Provision of meals, medical and dental inspection and treatment, physical education and school camps are some of the subjects dealt with, and finally recommendations are put forward which it is considered would improve the services. The memorandum is primarily intended for the information of members of the Union, but has been issued to the public in the hope that it may prove of use to those concerned with the health and fitness of the children of the nation.
