March 22. 1950 Swift Action THE contents of the Report on the Barbados General Hospital by Major T. J. Hallinan have been made public. The Report contains little that has not been brought to the attention of Government before by members of the Hospital Staff through normal channels. And many of the defects and difficulties enumerated in the Report have been noted in previous report* on the Hospital. But because the report underlines what previous reports have noted that is no reason for its suffering the fate of Miller reports. The present report was undertaken as a result of intense criticism by politicians and members of the public. It is an answer to that criticism and its recommendations are a challenge to the Government to act and to remove grounds for future criticism. If the Barbados Government wants a first class hospital it has got to employ an adequate number of medical personnel. Dr. Hallinan recommends the employment of one medical superintendent, one specialist Surgeon, one specialist Physician, one Specialist Radiologist and seven medical officers for general duty as an increased permanent staff. At present there is no Specialist Physician and only two of the three House Surgeons provided by the Government i mates are working, while another is due to leave in May. To increase the permanent cadre would cost approximately £5,000 per annum. I* is worth digressing here to make a comparison with the cost per head per week ol patients in other countries' hospitals. In the United Kingdom this cost is £12, in Sweden £i;j, in tile United States 109 U.S. dollars. In Barbados the cost per patient per week is £7. The moral is that nothing can be got for nothing. It lias got to be paid for. Extracts frum Dr. Hallinan's report sound terrible enough to the lay reader. "Owing to the shortage of beds in the public wards the medical CUM are all of a Sttrioui nature, many being admitted In a hopeless Co nditio n. The deaths are 00010quently large in number." Or %  is a waiting List for the public wards of over 500 patients needing surgical operations. This hst extends as far back as July 1M9." Sentences like that* taken from llu-n context have a horrifying sound, and, in rxplain much of the concern and criticism which preceded the writing of the report. It is very difficult to sum up Dr. Halliiturns, but there i.s plenty od MOD i lUons In the repot i for inipi<\ u pital. And there li %  main current running through the report which seems to emphasize that without adequate stalling and without greater necessary delegation of authority, the Hospital cannot be run on the most etiieient liner The mipoi Kinl thing is for the Barbados Public to have CODfli m their own hospital, it cannot have that confidence If, tor example, day to day worsting of the Hospital li to be the subject of political InterJerem i mil a hospital, ur to run SO) organ. must be vcMi.i iu i. it.,in HKILM tartnioi a loose %  Hie man or woman dOeQ| Uujob Th.H.ilhn.ui WlWwre in niun> doctors who have previously pointed oul mo.

Hy Profrvwir O. A. S.iiimlrrs M.A: ll.Se. The name of Whittle is associated with both jet propulsion and the Ras turbine — and they are both old ideas What, then, was the great thing he did? The answer is that he brought rtie two together He said. "Let us use a gas turbine to produce a powerful jet of exhaust gases." His great achievement was that he did it. One of the defects of the je; engine is its extravagance on fuel. For many purposes this is than outweighed by it* extraordinary lightness, which enables more fuel to be carried. BW f<>r longer flights, especially at iower altitudes and speeds, the 'urbo-prop is better. The turbo-prop uses a gas turbine engine to drive a conventional propeller. Trrhnirnl Rare THE remarkable developments in alrcraf; since 1941 have not, of course, been confined to this In the early days of the war we informed the Americans of our progress, and in 1941 sent a Whittle engine to the U.S. Out of mat have grown in iv changes in %  Ircrafl design The Germans are out of the technical race, but tho Ilussians are not. and the FrettOn have made great progress since The war. The thrust of the jet in tho Btt 39, the first jet-propelled air. plane—buill by the Gloster Aircraft Company in 1941—was about' 8001b. Recently Rolls-Royce announced the thrust of one of theiu latest engines as 6,2501b The E28.-39 Hew at about 360 miles per hour. In 1946 the Meteor reached 016 miles per hour, arid .orlay the official record is 671 miles per hour. Inline Y?| UNDOUBTEDLY the gas turbine type of engine will be used on land and sea for many purposes. It is compact and light, needs liltle or no water and no boiler, and does not require a ei the petrol engine. So far iv is in Its infancy and but It Is potentially capable ol development to cincicncie-, level with the best) steam rurbine plant and better. In modern gas turbine engineering twe coun.hes have pioneered the way, our own and Switzerland While we in this country were developing the gas turbine for aircraft, .tie Swiss .were developing the gas turbine for industrial purpi ass Today tho Swiss have built more Industrial gas turbines, •for. themand other countries. *an any other nation. We are now very aotive here in the same field. The Metropolitan-Vickers Company is building a 15.000 kw. set fur the Stretford power station. C. A. Parsons, Ltd.. are building a 15.000 kw. as* for the Dunston station and a 10.000 kw. set foi the National Gas Turbine establishment. JOHN BROWN AND COMPANY arc building a 12,500 kw. set for the Dundee station. All these gas turbines ire oil burners. Because oil has to be imported, tfieir fuel bills may be a little discouraging. This is counterbalanced by other advantages, but if it burned a really cheap fuel the gas turbine overall economy would be sojnuch greater. For us here mere are only two such fuels—coal and peat A great effort is. therefore, being made to adapt the gas turbipe to burn these fuels. The economic impulse towards xhe coal-burning gas turbine for land use has no parallel for th" marine gas turbine. Will <>a I iirbim v lliftplarc Steam ? SHIPS have moved away from coal to oil, and the most economical marine engine is likely to be that which burns the lowest grades of oil. Whether, die gas turbine will ultimately displace the steam turbine and the diescl engine will not bo decided for.-' The first gas turbine to drive a bhlp Is British. In 1947. MGB2009 began trials with a MetropolitanVickers gas turbine adapted from one of that firm's aircraft engines. This vessel uses diescl engines for slow speeds and the turbine for high speeds, and has had a very successful debut. There has not yet been demonstrated, however, a marina gas turbine for long continuous, steads 1 running, such as the main power plant of an ordinary ship demands But tesis of this kind of englnf will not be long delayed.

Instead of putting another pound In the bank they put another cow in the field Instead of buying a savings certificate they take another wife. Beery family has so much land, so many head of stock and so many women. If they hand over a girl as a wife to another family they are giving up some of their capital, and they expect something back for her. If she is divorced and IS to her lamilv the purchase is returned, less a discount for each child.

Miration Of Public Services Report (cuts-) THE reeert in this instalment makes reference to tht our ivcomniciidati'jns in respect of the holders of scheduled posts in unified sorvkes, who cnmpr.se most of the senior officers in the colonies, and to apply their own conditions to the rest would produce a situation which can only be described as farcical. The most likely conclunon is that tnese Governments will reject our recommendations on this matter and will adhere to the arrangements which are now in force. But it would have been quite idle for us to recommend the general adoption throughout the region of the speeuil arnumements which obtains in these colonies, since they would hnve been unacceptable to some of the other colonies on grounds of expense. Our recommendations on these and other matters relating to conditions of service should therefore be regarded as constituting the minimum provisions necessary to secure free transferability from one colony to another. In so far as any colony may have adopted more favourable conditions. W0 do not suggest any abatement of those conditions, though we recognise that any variations in conof service diminish pro tanto the possibilities of transfer. ENTRY STANDARD In his draft despatch of May, 1946, tho tan "f State contemplates the setting up of a regional executive authority to which would be delegated the powers of selection and posting of candidates to posts in unified services, subject to bii eporoval In cases where that is required under the CoumiaJ Keiiulations. Later, he elaborates the functions of such an authority by saying that it would set and maintain a common service and nominate the persons to be appointed, whether by recruitment or by promotion to vacant posts. He also points out that the difficulties inherent in the task of assessing claims to promotion are greatly i when the candidates concerned are serv(nn in different colonies, and goes on to say: "it is certainly not a task which the Secretary of State could successfully undertake at a distance in respect of purely local staff. It must be done the spot by an authority which Is not only in a to estimate the relative merits of candidates but to give effect to its conclusions." While we are in entire agreement with the Secretary of to the need for such an authority. It is. we venture to say, a great deal easier to postulate its creation than to formulate proposals for clothing it with the attributes which he prescribes. ords "on the spot" are no doubt used In a colloquial se ns e, but it is pertinent to point out that the colonies with which we are concerned Constitute fifteen different -pots, all separate! from one another by wattr. in some cases several hundred miles of it. It will bo appreciated, therefore, that 00 regional authority, however constituted and wherever situated, ran escape the disability which, M the Secretary at Suite Implicitly eg, must arise if Its headquarters are widely separated from the various colonies which COOM within its ambit. In the later paragraphs of this chapter, we make lUggestioni for minimising this disability, hut its i tnot be ignored. TITLE 1 We now have to consider the title of the reiglonal executive authority, its constitutional posi| tion. Its functions, and its composition. The functions referred to in paragraph 125 arc such as are usually discharged in other colonies, either directly or through the agency of promotion boards, by Public Service Commissions, and having regard to what we recommend functions, we consider this an appro'.nmenclature for the body referred to by the Secretary of Suite as a regional executive authority. „ As regards Its constitutional position, it is not for us to hazard a guess as to the constitutional form which the association of the British Caribbean colonies may take. Various possible alternatives are canvassed In "Closer Association British West Indian Colonies" (Cmd. 7120). but we are satisfied that a Public Service Comhowever constituted and however wide or narrow its functions, must either rest on some form of central Ofgen of i;overmnent, charged by the instrument which creates it with responsibility nig up and maintaining the Puhln Commission, or, alternatively, must be set up by rotary of State, its constitution and func:ai the remuneration of its members being Ined by him. Thounh we can lay no claim 00 constitutional issues, we car I no central organ of government short of .1 Government which could discharge the duties to which we have referred. T H* l.nun.rd D. V.

V. WORK OF THE HOSPITAL. In-patients Jt With the exception of the Parochial Almsbouses, which provide ar^odstion for the infirm poor, the Maternity Hospital for the training of i| fl vfs,and a few small private Nursing Homes, the Barbados (leneral Hos m! itoiides the only facilities for treatment of medical and surgical oases !„ Island. The following summary shows the development of this work |MI Kiiou with "lii-1'atients" during the last ten years. Summary oil ll : H-tS wi m..na. number* . not reported. NUT.. The poll o( IUd.olo.Ut wu vecan. dur.n. l*_ S. 1) Hospital accommodation for the National Health Scheme in the Ud Kingdom is developing on an estimated requirement of 800 beds for WOOof the population, with a staff of 30 doctors. In the Barbados General iul 336 beds are provided for a population of 200,000. This includes a Unity ward of 19 beda (9 for mothers and 10 for infante) which should properly be counted amongst the (ieneral Hospital accommodation, and hscludes about 12 permanently empty beds in tl phthalmie wards thus hr reducing the beds available for all purposes to little more than 300. (2) It is evident that, even on one-third of the standard of Great %  tin, Barbados is still far short of enough hospital accommodation for populate.!!, even I",,,serious sick uses for which hospital aecommotial jB. Tins Hospital |. Is for paying patients who pay a daily •i ifor their .neomuiodalion and nursing in the Tercentenary Wards, Pay itb'A" and "K", and the Ophthalmic Pay Ward "D". They also pay fees nMlment to the Visiting Staff or to the Specialist Surgeon, and extra *J tfss at rates fixed by the Government for operations, the use of the oper%  Jthfi.li.'. \ Kay examinations, el.. ti..,li. i.iphy and 1.

Patients in these wards receive treatTfrw of all charges for operations, special examinations, etc. 17. The work of the Hospital wards, during the last ten years is shown th following summary.

There is a waiting list for the publie wards of OTaf 500 patients paedim suririral ("rations. Tins n far back as July 194^. The waiting Pay Ward "A 1 daily ahaia? tut one moBta mill the waitinaj liat i"i the rerce-ataBar] dailj ebajryaj aaowa that patients, except mi rare nnnarimia can enter at their convenience usually booking a week or foHariffht in idvaaea. Surgical operation are done as a routine 4 days a week In Barrleea A and B MI altanata days, about ll> to lb eases being dealt with each day starting about 8 a.m. and ending between 6 and 10.30 p.m. The programnii' oi operationi is drafted foy tha tlooj operating who first selects the cases for his Service marked Urgent", on tha | ward waiting list, ami than caaea from the Long outstanding oaaaa to make up a reasonably possible programme for the day. The list then goes to the Visiting btall of the Service who add their requirements of paying ward patients who have been or are being admitted for operations. Should the programme be too Long naaa "f the outstanding public ward patients may have u< wait a little longer. The position does therefore exist that patients of the poorer elaaa with disabilities, not necessitating immediate or early operation, can obtain earl> relief by electing to enter one of the paying wauls. a. by paying fees for treatDk m and operation whicb *hey cannot afford, and in some cases ean only raise by the sale of their possessions. This position has been created in the last ten yean by the lack of hospital accommodation >u meat '*"* public requirements, aud is a source of embarrassment to the Visiting Staff and the Specialist Surgeon. 29. Tha medical work of the Hospital is carried ottt almost entirely in the public wards, very few medical eases being treated in the paying wards. Owing to the shortage of beds the medical caaea are all of a serious nature, many being admitted in a hopeless condition. The deaths are consequently large in number. The attendance ol doctors to these patients consists of six afternoon ridts bj three members of the Visiting Staff to their alloted beds, some patients Iveing seen by tht-rn thiea daya a week, • *tti--r patienta two dan • week and others one day each week. A House Surgeon is in general charge of all patients in tha jiiedieal wards in addition to many other duties. It is therefore possible, and actually does occur, that days may arrive when patients m the medical warda are not seen by a doetor at all. Examination of the case sheets of patu-iius ihowl that every effort is made by tliimiin minium I would ivrotimieitd that eon si deration be given to the enlargement of the Maternity Hospital to take all eases of labour and so release the present burden on the General Hospital of dealing with these caaea amounting to over 300 a year. 31. (a) The Ophthslmie Hospital deala wrj oonwletekj with all tha en work oi' the Hospital but its records shoe re rarely more than half occupied. From its position apart from the Hospital it requires a nursing MalT sufficient for its full number of beds. (bj Reeommemlation : Under tinpresent %  iivuiiuiunees ol at> treme shortage of accommodation it is recooiuiended thai arraugeinent-s I %  to use these vacant beds to for all ear, nose and throat eases or patients i taking uninleiiir | from Minnie surgical operations Hospital Diets :t'_' Theas arc ample and wall prepa standards whiali are higher than thai to whiefa th [rntrnrti In the free warda are aceustoaaed. There would appear to be the possibility of savings in the case of boapital diets now standing at 127,500 yeariy and I recommend that the prea refully examined and, if Daoeamurj vised to affect any possible economy while retaining the necessary standard of nourishment.

Casualty Cases 90 Caaea for dreaainga and other oases oeeurring out of regular hours are dealt with by the Casualty Officer on duty for the day who is one of the House Mirgeon* performing this work in addition to lus ward and other duties. 36 On the operating daya %  u reUavea the House Surgeon Of the aarviea at 3 pin, and carries on giving anaesthetics for the remainder of the operations which may keep him so employed up to sometimes after 10 p.m. During tins parsed tha aam in <-harge of th.eawnalry department reports BU %  aaea bj •lepl on I rating theatre and reeeivea Id*.

Daring tha period when a Casualty Oaaear is engaged in giving anaesthetic* minoi kept until I to them or, if they ttended by the nora Oeeasdonally a ease gets tired of waiting and leave* the hospital to obtain treatment outside. 37. An arrangement exists in theory that a second Casualty Officer should be on call but with only 3 House Surgeons available and no Anaesthetist this would result in practice that they would be almost permanently on duty or call. At times it is necessary for the Medical Superintendent to treat casualty caaea to rattan the situation. There is no suitable place for detaining a case under observation in the rasualtv daps 'he very common case of a man brought MI inKcm>iblr. smelling strongly of drink, and with signs of slight head injury, wined aright !' a simple drunk or a fractured skull. 8neh cases now have to remail alty room while a nurse \\ present on duty, or be transferred to an already overloaded ward where it ran be under observation. The small nursing cadre does not permit of a i nd '-asusJties il ward. vi. iiosi'iiM. rna IND OTBBB CUABOI 38.

VII. DISCIPLINE. 44. I could find no evidence of indiscipline amongst the hospital statT who apj-eared to be aa well conducted and respectful to authority as the staff of any similar institution elsewhere. Their work generally is onerous and exact. ing and the faults brought to my notice were of same type of caaea that occas' ionally have to be dealt with in any institution, -.g., laainess, eareleaaneaa in fraction of minor rules, small peculations of food, etc. Sometimes serious in themselves, but not occurring so frequently aa to reflect on the general con duet of the hoapital BtaaTi it would, asrwenv, strengthen the new hospital administration if any ease recommended for dismissal were dealt with as quickly as possible. The old Hospital Board poaaeased the power of immediate dismissal and not infrequently used it, but under the existing machinery of Uoveniment uiitrol, the dismissal of even the lowest grades of hospital emplovees reijuiics the procedure of ition ending with the final iisnirration and aanction of the Governor w^o must be overburdened with matters, whieh, owing to their complexity aud magnitude, are obliged to bc settled at this high level. t)ne such recent case MI which dismissal was recommended, carried-on, on account of one delay or another for about nine months, and, during that time remained a point of embarrassment to the hospital administration 45. I can find no substantiated case of rudeness of a nurse to a patient though one complaint waa recently made of sharp replies of a nurse to a patient's relatives. This case was not substantiated, though it is quite possible that Home may have occurred in the present conditions of shortage of medinl staff and a large proportion of hard-worked nurses under training who have not yet learned to exercise the forbearance that is ao frequently necesaarwbetween nurses and patienta and their anxious relatives who are sometimes too distressed to realise that the nurse has duties and responsibilities for a number of other patients. 1 46. A few cases A outside tnterfe r a n aa wan brought to my notice in which the persons who considered themselves to be of more or leas importance unity had endeavoured to influence members of the administra• M pass •

be a matter for the Executive
Committee.

Mr. Baeoa (El said that if it
wore said that an architect was
bringing up plans, it meant that
the Executive Committee had
committed themselves. If they

put a token vote there it would

Mr. P. u Walcott said that
since it was agreed that Gov-

with their present man. they
had asked Mr Lawfi to see the
plan but they had entered into
no agreement with him. It was
very obvious that if they in-
tended to make a purchase, thev
would have to tlnd out about

Swift Action
THE contents of the Report on the
Barbados General Hospital by Major T. J.
Hallinan have been made public.
The Report contains little that has not
been brought to the attention of Govern-
ment before by members of the Hospital
Staff through normal channels. And many
of the defects and difficulties enumerated
in the Report have been noted in previous
report* on the Hospital.
But because the report underlines what
previous reports have noted that is no
reason for its suffering the fate of Miller
reports. The present report was undertaken
as a result of intense criticism by politicians
and members of the public.
It is an answer to that criticism and its
recommendations are a challenge to the
Government to act and to remove grounds
for future criticism.
If the Barbados Government wants a
first class hospital it has got to employ an
adequate number of medical personnel.
Dr. Hallinan recommends the employment
of one medical superintendent, one special-
ist Surgeon, one specialist Physician, one
Specialist Radiologist and seven medical
officers for general duty as an increased
permanent staff.
At present there is no Specialist Physi-
cian and only two of the three House Sur-
geons provided by the Government i
mates are working, while another is due to
leave in May.
To increase the permanent cadre would
cost approximately 5,000 per annum. I*
is worth digressing here to make a com-
parison with the cost per head per week ol
patients in other countries' hospitals. In
the United Kingdom this cost is 12, in
Sweden i;j, in tile United States 109 U.S.
dollars. In Barbados the cost per patient
per week is 7.
The moral is that nothing can be got for
nothing. It lias got to be paid for.
Extracts frum Dr. Hallinan's report sound
terrible enough to the lay reader.
"Owing to the shortage of beds in the
public wards the medical CUM are all of a
Sttrioui nature, many being admitted In a
hopeless Condition. The deaths are 00010-
quently large in number." Or
is a waiting List for the public wards of
over 500 patients needing surgical oper-
ations. This hst extends as far back as
July 1M9."
Sentences like that* taken from llu-n
context have a horrifying sound, and, in
rxplain much of the concern
and criticism which preceded the writing
of the report.
It is very difficult to sum up Dr. Halli-
iturns, but there i.s plenty
od mod i lUons In the repot i
for inipi<\ u pital.
And there li main current running
through the report which seems to em-
phasize that without adequate stalling and
without greater necessary delegation of
authority, the Hospital cannot be run on
the most etiieient liner The mipoi Kinl thing
is for the Barbados Public to have CODfl-
i m their own hospital, it cannot have
that confidence If, tor example, day to day

and the Ras turbine and they
are both old ideas What, then,
was the great thing he did?
The answer is that he brought

us use a gas turbine to produce
a powerful jet of exhaust gases."
His great achievement was that
he did it.
One of the defects of the je;
engine is its extravagance on
fuel. For many purposes this is
than outweighed by it*
extraordinary lightness, which
enables more fuel to be carried.
BW f<>r longer flights, especial-
ly at iower altitudes and speeds,
the 'urbo-prop is better. The

engine to drive a conventional

any other nation.
We are now very aotive here in
the same field.
The Metropolitan-Vickers Com-
pany is building a 15.000 kw. set
fur the Stretford power station.
C. A. Parsons, Ltd.. are building
a 15.000 kw. as* for the Dunston

lishment.
JOHN BROWN AND COMPANY
arc building a 12,500 kw. set for

All these gas turbines ire oil
burners. Because oil has to be im-
ported, tfieir fuel bills may be a
little discouraging.
This is counterbalanced by
other advantages, but if it burn-
ed a really cheap fuel the gas
turbine overall economy would be
sojnuch greater.
For us here mere are only two
such fuelscoal and peat A great
effort is. therefore, being made to
adapt the gas turbipe to burn

land use has no parallel for th"

SHIPS have moved away from
coal to oil, and the most economi-
cal marine engine is likely to be
that which burns the lowest
grades of oil.
Whether, die gas turbine will
ultimately displace the steam tur-
bine and the diescl engine will
not bo decided for.-'
The first gas turbine to drive a
bhlp Is British. In 1947. MGB2009
began trials with a Metropolitan-
Vickers gas turbine adapted from
one of that firm's aircraft engines.
This vessel uses diescl engines
for slow speeds and the turbine
for high speeds, and has had a
very successful debut.
There has not yet been demon-
strated, however, a marina gas
turbine for long continuous, steads1
running, such as the main power
plant of an ordinary ship demands

Miration Of Public
Services Report (cuts-)
THE reeert in this instalment makes refer-
ence to th<- despatch hy the Secretary of
State fur ih Cetessiea tusnegehsg conditions
of sssrvsee,
IN the preceding paragraphs we have made cer-
: inundations designed to meet'the wishes
.,f the S- Stato, as set out in paragraph
$ of his draft despatch, in regard to common
conditions of service In respect of leave, passages,
pensions, and the like. Certain eireuoseteeoss
.iv. huwover. arisen which make it doubtful
shot her these recommendations will be accepta-
ble to the Governments of some of the colon.es.
We mentioned in paragraph 94 that In four of
he colonies conditions of service Wei
had been under investigation by separate Salaries
Commissions. The situation, therefore, which
loped is that at one and the same time
-onditions of service are under review in four
.f the territories on colony basis and under
by ourselves on a regional basis. It is
iot our business to criticise this state of affairs,
but we can legitimately draw attention to the
tonscquences which will inevitably flow from it.
This we can best do by way of example. In
paragraphs 115 and 116. we have recommended
hat after a tour of duty of four years (three in
the case of British Guiana and British Honduras)
free passages for himself and his wife should be
:ranted to an expatriate officer. The Government
if Trinidad & Tobago, as we have pointed out
antly adopted an arrangement wbereb)
MOtor expatriate officers are allowed up to three
ful! passages to and from their homes after a
minimum tour of two and a half-years. Again
in British Honduras, officers above a certain sal-
ary point are eligible for two free passages to
and from the United Kingdom after two years
of duty.
FARCICAL
What then will the Governments of these col-
mies do when faced with our recommendations'.'
;>t our ivcomniciidati'jns in respect of the
holders of scheduled posts in unified sorvkes,
who cnmpr.se most of the senior officers in the
colonies, and to apply their own conditions to
the rest would produce a situation which can only
be described as farcical. The most likely conclu-
non is that tnese Governments will reject our
recommendations on this matter and will adhere
to the arrangements which are now in force.
But it would have been quite idle for us to recom-
mend the general adoption throughout the region
of the speeuil arnumements which obtains in these
colonies, since they would hnve been unacceptable
to some of the other colonies on grounds of expense.
Our recommendations on these and other matters
relating to conditions of service should therefore
be regarded as constituting the minimum provi-
sions necessary to secure free transferability from
one colony to another. In so far as any colony
may have adopted more favourable conditions. W0
do not suggest any abatement of those conditions,
though we recognise that any variations in con-
of service diminish pro tanto the possi-
bilities of transfer.
ENTRY STANDARD
In his draft despatch of May, 1946, tho
tan "f State contemplates the setting up of a
regional executive authority to which would be
delegated the powers of selection and posting of
candidates to posts in unified services, subject to bii
eporoval In cases where that is required under the
CoumiaJ Keiiulations. Later, he elaborates the
functions of such an authority by saying that it
would set and maintain a common service and
nominate the persons to be appointed, whether by
recruitment or by promotion to vacant posts. He
also points out that the difficulties inherent in the
task of assessing claims to promotion are greatly
i when the candidates concerned are serv-
(nn in different colonies, and goes on to say: "it is
certainly not a task which the Secretary of State
could successfully undertake at a distance in re-
spect of purely local staff. It must be done
the spot by an authority which Is not only in a
to estimate the relative merits of candi-
dates but to give effect to its conclusions." While
we are in entire agreement with the Secretary of
to the need for such an authority. It is.
we venture to say, a great deal easier to postulate
its creation than to formulate proposals for
clothing it with the attributes which he prescribes.
ords "on the spot" are no doubt used In a
colloquial sense, but it is pertinent to point out
that the colonies with which we are concerned
Constitute fifteen different -pots, all separate!
from one another by wattr. in some cases several
hundred miles of it. It will bo appreciated, there-
fore, that 00 regional authority, however consti-
tuted and wherever situated, ran escape the dis-
ability which, m the Secretary at Suite Implicitly
eg, must arise if Its headquarters are
widely separated from the various colonies which
COOM within its ambit. In the later paragraphs of
this chapter, we make lUggestioni for minimising
this disability, hut its i tnot be ignored.
TITLE
1 We now have to consider the title of the re-
iglonal executive authority, its constitutional posi-
| tion. Its functions, and its composition.
The functions referred to in paragraph 125 arc
such as are usually discharged in other colonies,
either directly or through the agency of promo-
tion boards, by Public Service Commissions, and
having regard to what we recommend
functions, we consider this an appro-
'.nmenclature for the body referred to by
the Secretary of Suite as a regional executive
authority.
As regards Its constitutional position, it is not
for us to hazard a guess as to the constitutional
form which the association of the British Carib-
bean colonies may take. Various possible
alternatives are canvassed In "Closer Association
British West Indian Colonies" (Cmd. 7120).
but we are satisfied that a Public Service Com-
however constituted and however wide
or narrow its functions, must either rest on some
form of central Ofgen of i;overmnent, charged by
the instrument which creates it with responsibility
nig up and maintaining the Puhln
Commission, or, alternatively, must be set up by
rotary of State, its constitution and func-
:ai the remuneration of its members being
Ined by him. Thounh we can lay no claim
00 constitutional issues, we car
I no central organ of government short of
.1 Government which could discharge the
duties to which we have referred.

S. 1) Hospital accommodation for the National Health Scheme in the
Ud Kingdom is developing on an estimated requirement of 800 beds for
WOOof the population, with a staff of 30 doctors. In the Barbados General
iul 336 beds are provided for a population of 200,000. This includes a
Unity ward of 19 beda (9 for mothers and 10 for infante) which should
properly be counted amongst the (ieneral Hospital accommodation, and
hscludes about 12 permanently empty beds in tl.....phthalmie wards thus
hr reducing the beds available for all purposes to little more than 300.

28. There is a waiting list for the publie wards of OTaf 500 patients paedim
suririral ("rations. Tins n far back as July 194^. The waiting
Pay Ward "A1 daily ahaia? tut one moBta
mill the waitinaj liat i"i the rerce-ataBar] dailj ebajryaj aaowa that
patients, except mi rare nnnarimia can enter at their convenience usually booking
a week or foHariffht in idvaaea. Surgical operation are done as a routine 4 days
a week In Barrleea A and B mi altanata days, about ll> to lb eases being dealt
with each day starting about 8 a.m. and ending between 6 and 10.30 p.m. The
programnii' oi operationi is drafted foy tha tlooj operat-
ing who first selects the cases for his Service marked Urgent", on tha |
ward waiting list, ami than caaea from the Long outstanding oaaaa to make up a
reasonably possible programme for the day. The list then goes to the Visiting
btall of the Service who add their requirements of paying ward patients who
have been or are being admitted for operations. Should the programme be too
Long naaa "f the outstanding public ward patients may have u< wait a little
longer. The position does therefore exist that patients of the poorer elaaa with
disabilities, not necessitating immediate or early operation, can obtain earl>
relief by electing to enter one of the paying wauls. a. by paying fees for treat-
Dk m and operation whicb *hey cannot afford, and in some cases ean only raise
by the sale of their possessions. This position has been created in the last ten
yean by the lack of hospital accommodation >u meat '*"* public requirements,
aud is a source of embarrassment to the Visiting Staff and the Specialist Surgeon.
29. Tha medical work of the Hospital is carried ottt almost entirely in the
public wards, very few medical eases being treated in the paying wards. Owing
to the shortage of beds the medical caaea are all of a serious nature, many being
admitted in a hopeless condition. The deaths are consequently large in number.
The attendance ol doctors to these patients consists of six afternoon ridts bj
three members of the Visiting Staff to their alloted beds, some patients Iveing
seen by tht-rn thiea daya a week, *tti--r patienta two dan week and others one
day each week. A House Surgeon is in general charge of all patients in tha
jiiedieal wards in addition to many other duties. It is therefore possible, and
actually does occur, that days may arrive when patients m the medical warda
are not seen by a doetor at all. Examination of the case sheets of patu-iius ihowl
that every effort is made by tli<- overworked permanent itafl to provide a reason-
able standard of treatment for tbl tt it eau hardly bc described as
adequate. It is certainly not the standard that should be maintained in a first
lavs boapitaL The exeettani facilities thai i rial in the B* tenologieal Laboratory
for highly technical examinations and the tiner points of diagnosis are not used
iu tha extent tiiat they ahffflM be Mine the doetora ban not tha time to spend on
the detailed examination of eases that WOtlld require them. Than is little call
for comment on the work of the V. D. Department which functions adequately,
beyond the fact that it requires regular visils by one of the House Surgeons in
addition to the Visiting Staff.
80. a; The maternity ward of the H nil Hospital deals with
complicated or dithVult cases of labour sent in by doctors or brought into hospital
in urgency, aud is under the charge of a House Surgeon. The MaU'imiv
Hospital maintained at Verona by the Government was apparently planned to
raearre oases of labour for tha purpose onlj of training midwives and not to
provide a Midwifery Hospital for general requirements of the public. It might
be reasonably argued that a knowledge of the treatment of eonpUoal.....I if
labour is also of value in the training of mid*
^b) it fr>imiin minium I would ivrotimieitd that eon si deration be given
to the enlargement of the Maternity Hospital to take all eases of labour and so
release the present burden on the General Hospital of dealing with these caaea
amounting to over 300 a year.
31. (a) The Ophthslmie Hospital deala wrj oonwletekj with all tha en
work oi' the Hospital but its records shoe re rarely more than
half occupied. From its position apart from the Hospital it requires a nursing
MalT sufficient for its full number of beds.
(bj Reeommemlation : Under tin- present iivuiiuiunees ol at>
treme shortage of accommodation it is recooiuiended thai arraugeinent-s I
to use these vacant beds to for all ear,
nose and throat eases or patients i taking uninleiiir | from Minnie
surgical operations
Hospital Diets
:t'_' Theas arc ample and wall prepa stand-
ards whiali are higher than thai to whiefa th [rntrnrti In the free
warda are aceustoaaed. There would appear to be the possibility of savings
in the case of boapital diets now standing at 127,500 yeariy and I recommend
that the prea refully examined and, if Daoeamurj
vised to affect any possible economy while retaining the necessary standard
of nourishment.

84. An enettant feature of \\w arnrk of tha Ont-patianl Department is
the srrangi'inent for diabetes patients tn attend regularly to receive insulin
It would be of great benefll to tha diabetie" caaea living in the

Casualty Cases
90 Caaea for dreaainga and other oases oeeurring out of regular hours are
dealt with by the Casualty Officer on duty for the day who is one of the House
Mirgeon* performing this work in addition to lus ward and other duties.
36 On the operating daya u reUavea the House Surgeon
Of the aarviea at 3 pin, and carries on giving anaesthetics for the remainder
of the operations which may keep him so employed up to sometimes after 10
p.m. During tins parsed tha aam in <-harge of th.- eawnalry department

Daring tha period when a Casualty Oaaear is engaged in giving anaesthetic*
minoi kept until I to them or, if they
ttended by the nora Oeeasdonally a ease gets tired of
waiting and leave* the hospital to obtain treatment outside.
37. An arrangement exists in theory that a second Casualty Officer should
be on call but with only 3 House Surgeons available and no Anaesthetist this
would result in practice that they would be almost permanently on duty or
call. At times it is necessary for the Medical Superintendent to treat casualty
caaea to rattan the situation. There is no suitable place for detaining a case
under observation in the rasualtv daps 'he very common case of
a man brought mi inKcm>iblr. smelling strongly of drink, and with signs of
slight head injury, wined aright !' a simple drunk or a fractured skull. 8neh
cases now have to remail alty room while a nurse
\\ present on duty, or be transferred to an already overloaded ward where it
ran be under observation. The small nursing cadre does not permit of a

' The present scale of Fees is Hied by the Barbados General Hospital
(rees) fUgnlaUona, L948, whieh cams into facas an 1st June, 1949 In the
next following paragraphs, comment* are offered on the Schedules at-
la. lied to tlie*.' Ki'^ulationa.
First Schedule.

wards. All elaaaaa Of tha Usununity are thus receiving equal assistance.
\2) Tha faas lac ,.../.. >,,, deeien to "atadinal patients" in the pay-
ing wards, are fairly naaaaaibai
Second Schedule.
41. (1) The fcea for apt rations are based OB those current in the United
Kingdom where the incomes of all classes are far higher than those of corre-
sponding classes in Barbados.
(2) HecommendatKiu. 1 recommend
0 that all fees ahove $100 Lu this scaJc sliould be reduced for
patienta In the rii.nit.iiat> wards and hn Ward "1>" to
,iir,.i of the praaant seale, and For patienta In I'av Ward

ii that all fee* below $100 in this seale should be iwluced to

Third and Fourth Schedules

and should be reviled and reduced to figures that roughly represent the actual
coat to taa Qovorniaertf of each examination. Th- Ltoteoud also be greatly

Phis recotiiinendatiou may seem somewhat meticulous, Im;
made for the roaaon that the Itntish Medical Association has banned all ad-
v. rtis. nients in it* Journal for posts in Barbados on the complaint of a Kadi
recently resigned from (lie Lttrbados Qeneral MoNjutal. that his

The action of tin- Mrttish Medical Association regardless of its effect en '200,000
people ol th Q seem deplorable, but if la letter to avoid conflict
; .nit of principle.
43. These r-eommendations for reduction of Fees are supported by the
fact that many patients now find it imjHJssibla to pay them aud thv
iidminntratioii ja frequently called upon by the Casualty Surgeon and mem-
bers of the Visiting Staff to aanction reduction of fees for paying patients
under their care.
VII. DISCIPLINE.
44. I could find no evidence of indiscipline amongst the hospital statT
who apj-eared to be aa well conducted and respectful to authority as the staff
of any similar institution elsewhere. Their work generally is onerous and exact- .
ing and the faults brought to my notice were of same type of caaea that occas- '
ionally have to be dealt with in any institution, -.g., laainess, eareleaaneaa in
fraction of minor rules, small peculations of food, etc. Sometimes serious in
themselves, but not occurring so frequently aa to reflect on the general con
duet of the hoapital BtaaTi it would, asrwenv, strengthen the new hospital
administration if any ease recommended for dismissal were dealt with as
quickly as possible. The old Hospital Board poaaeased the power of imme-
diate dismissal and not infrequently used it, but under the existing machinery
of Uoveniment uiitrol, the dismissal of even the lowest grades of hospital
emplovees reijuiics the procedure of ition ending with the final
. iisnirration and aanction of the Governor w^o must be overburdened with
matters, whieh, owing to their complexity aud magnitude, are obliged to bc
settled at this high level. t)ne such recent case mi which dismissal was recom-
mended, carried-on, on account of one delay or another for about nine months,
and, during that time remained a point of embarrassment to the hospital
administration
45. I can find no substantiated case of rudeness of a nurse to a patient
though one complaint waa recently made of sharp replies of a nurse to a
patient's relatives. This case was not substantiated, though it is quite possible
that Home may have occurred in the present conditions of shortage of medinl
staff and a large proportion of hard-worked nurses under training who have
not yet learned to exercise the forbearance that is ao frequently necesaarw-
between nurses and patienta and their anxious relatives who are sometimes
too distressed to realise that the nurse has duties and responsibilities for a
number of other patients. 1
46. A few cases A outside tnterferanaa wan brought to my notice in
which the persons who considered themselves to be of more or leas importance
unity had endeavoured to influence members of the administra-
