CARDIFF BOARD OF GUARDIANS I We have been requested by the clerk to the Cardiff Union to give publicity to a circular which has been addressed by Dr, H. J. Paine to the joint cemmittee of the union workhouse and Ely Schools, upon the subject of the application of Dr. Sheen for an increase of salary. In the course of the circular, Dr. Paine says:- The hospital department at the end of 1883 consisted of ten wards, with an extra building, then called The Refuge,' but now fitted up for the reception of cases of infectious diseases, the whole capable of accommodating 130 patients the average number of cases under medical treat- ment then being 127. Dr. Sheen's salary was fixed in 1881 at L170 a year. The number of sick under medical treatment in the house greatly increased, so that it became necessary in the early part of last year to materially increase the extent of hospital accommodation. For some time I have frequently visited the sick wards, and have always observed that the treatment and care of the sick has been highly satisfactory. I may here mention that a few months back I received a communication from Dr. Mouat, Local Govern- ment Inspector, stating he was directed to visit the Cardiff Workhouse, and invited me as chair- man to accompany him when he made his inspec- tion this I did, Mr Bircham was also with us his inquiries were most searching, and occupied upwards of three hours. At the termination of his visit, he expressed to me that he was highly gratified with the whole of the hospital arrange- ments, that the sick were exceedingly we" cared for, and that the institution would compare advantageously with any union hospital in the kingdom these remarks I brought before the notice of the board at its next meeting. The aggregate number of cases under medical treatment, on the 1st of January in the present year, was 245. The total cases coming under the treatment of your medical officer during the year 1884 were 1,359, the daily average being 174, and the weekly number of fresh sick cases admitted 43. The average time each patient remains under medical treatment is 46 days. The present re- muneration of j*>ur medical officer is £ 170. Dividing this sum by 1,359 gives 2s 5 £ d as tho remuneration per head for each sick patient, In addition to these duties, your medical officer has to examine at his daily visits all inmates admitted into receiving ward before admission into the general body of the house. He has thus to make a daily visit, additional visits being required when urgent cases are under treatment. He has also to attend the Ely Schools. As regards the latter establishment, I have for a long time considered it highly desirable the two establishments should lie ssparate appointments."
