  • Medical Practice


In six months patients from a defined population of 11,417 provided 826 casual attendances for minor conditions at a hospital accident department and 1,430 similar attendances at a health centre treatment room. Attendances at the accident department reached a peak during the early evening, and included relatively more males, more adults, more patients with injuries than with symptoms, and more residents from the area immediately adjoining the hospital.
