COPY OF LETTER FROM THE
CHAIRMAN
OF THE
COMMITTEE TO THE CHAIRMAN OF THE CENTRAL
HEALTH SERVICES COUNCIL
11,
Lome Street,
Manchester, 13.
October,
1958.
Dear Lord
Cohen,
With this letter I send you the report of the Committee on the Welfare
of Children in Hospital which the Central Health Services Council
appointed on 12th June, 1956.
The Committee have
found
the subject of absorbing interest and weare only sorry that its ramifications have proved too wide to permit us
to report sooner. It is clear that interest in the subject among parents
and hospitals has been
growing
steadily since we were appointed and we
believe that a movement towards a new concept of child care in hospitals
is already well advanced. We trust that the results of our enquiry may
be of some value in consolidating this progress and encouraging further
advance.We should like to record our appreciation of the services of Mr.
R. G. Lavelle and Mrs. J. M. Craig, who successively acted as our
Secretaries and dealt ably and skilfully with the assembling of material
for us to study and the recording of our proceedings. We are also
grateful to Mr. A. R. W. Bavin, the Secretary of the Council, for his
help in the later stages of the drafting of our report.
Yours sincerely,
(Sgd.)
HARRY PLATT,
Chairman.
The Lord Cohen of Birkenhead, J.P., M.D., D.Sc., LL.D., F.R.C.P.,
Chairman,
Central Health Services Council,
Ministry of Health,
Alexander Fleming House
Elephant and Castle,
London,
