Appeal on behalf of the British Hospital for Mothers and Babies, by tho Countess OF
CARLISLE
THIS Hospital is remarkable in that it exists,
primarily, for those patients it does not attend-tho future patients of its midwifery pupils. It was founded in 1905 for the purpose of improving the training of midwives, and the standard it then set of a full twelve month's training was copied twenty-one years later by the Central Midwives' Board. Having begun life (like the babies it cares for) on a very small scale, the Hospital grow gradually, and a new building was erected, with the help of the Ministry of Health, and opened by the Queen in 1922. But owing to lack of funds, only one-third of tho eventual National Training School could then be built, and a second section is soon to bo begui at a cost of £30,000, only half of which is at present in hand.
