This thesis shows the work done during the first ten years of the National Health Service in a small semi-rural practice. It illustrates the type and number of the cases which are met with in such a practice. The geography of the district, the social history of the people, and the organisation of the practice are described, as well as the system of antenatal care. The yearly case notes are given, followed by a discussion on the initial examination, incidence of hypertension, home confinement, and the type of feeding at six weeks, as these are applicable to the practice, The final chapter is devoted to discussion of, and some minor suggestions for the improvement of, midwifery by the family doctor.
