The area over which its nursing work is carried out covers nine square miles of the crowded and poverty-stricken districts of West Ham, East Ham, and the Victoria Docks, Canning Town and Tidal Basin. The nursing staff numbers 230; 5,345 maternity cases were attended last year, and 3,442 cases of general illness ; 6,000 mothers and 20,000 children are on the books of the Welfare Centres, and the Training School sends its pupils to every county in England and Wales.
