Appeal on behalf of the Cheyne Hospital for
Children, by Sir NIGEL PLAYFAIR
CHEYNE HOSPITAL for children was founded over fifty years ago to receive children who were discharged or excluded from the General
Hospitals because they suffered from incurable complaints, or because their cases required more and longer treatment than the larger hospitals were able to give. In some instances, the continuous nursing of patients at Cheyne Hospital extends to several years. Over eighty per cent. of the patients treated have been discharged in a cured or relieved condition.
Her Majesty the Queen is President of the Hospital and the Earl of Cromer is chairman of the committee.
Statistics show that
Cheyno Hospital and its Branch Hospital at St.
Nicholas-at-Wade, near . Margate, are economically rim; but the need for improvements has made extensive demands upon their 'resources.
Donations, etc., should be sent to [address removed].
