HC Deb 02 March 1904 vol 130 cc1469-70

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieu- tenant of Ireland whether the Local Government Board will sanction the appointment to workhouse infirmaries of nurses who hold certificates from the Children's Hospital in Dublin.

(Answered, by Mr. Wyndham.) The Children's Hospital in Temple Street is regarded by the Board to be competent to certify nurses as qualified within the meaning of Article 2 (b) of the Nursing Order, provided such nurse has received not less than three months training in some recognised general hospital where adult patients are treated. The Board has not yet been asked to recognise the Children's Hospital in Harcourt Street as a training school for nurses.
