THE City Council of Liverpool, together with the University and the Merseyside Voluntary Hospitals have combined to finance a chair of child health, which was opened on October 27 last (Lancet, 608, Nov. 4, 1944). This new department will teach the subject to undergraduates and, in postgraduate courses, to medical men. Liverpool thus follows the lead given by Edinburgh as long ago as 1931. The generosity of the Nuffield Foundation has made possible the creation of a chair of child health in London, where a postgraduate institute is to be created in association with the Hammersmith Postgraduate Medical School and the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children (Brit. Med. J., 410, Sept. 23, 1944). The Nuffield Provincial Hospitals Trust has also assisted the endowment of a chair of child health at King's College, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
