98 Mass Radiography in the Birmingham Region The mass-radiography service in the Birmingham region has been augmented by the formation of two new units. The Stoke unit (Dr. E. Posner) will serve the Potteries and the north of the region, whilst the Birmingham mobile unit (Dr. W. M. Dixon) will operate in and around Birmingham. Faculty of Radiologists The following officers were elected at the annual general meeting on June 20 : president, Dr. Peter Kerley ; vice- presidents, Prof. A. S. Johnstone and Mr. C. J. L. Thurgar ; hon. treasurer, Dr. J. W. McLaren ; hon. secretary, Dr. Rohan Williams ; hon. editor, Miss Margaret Tod. Hospital Dental Service The Minister of Health (R.H.B.[52]75) has suggested that a grade of whole-time general dental surgeon should be intro- duced in hospitals. The day-to-day work of this officer would include the conservation of teeth by means of routine fillings, scaling and treatment of the gums, the extraction of teeth for the removal of oral sepsis or the relief of pain, and the supply of dentures. He might serve two or more hospitals within a group. The grade would, in the Minister’s view, be of particular value in long-stay hospitals where general dental work is often undertaken for inpatients. There may also be scope for general dental surgeons in other hospitals, but it is not intended at this stage to offer short-stay patients dental treatment beyond what is needed as part of their medical care or for relief of pain. The Minister hopes that the intro- duction of this grade will attract to the hospital service those who wish to make a career there without aspiring to senior staff status ; in particular he thinks that some dental registrars who do not obtain senior registrar appointments may welcome the opportunity which it affords. The salary scale for the new grade is to be E900 x E30 to :E960 X E40 to £1200 x £50 to £1500. _____________ The Minister of Pensions has appointed Prof. Walter Mercer chairman of the Standing Advisory Committee on Artificial Limbs in succession to Mr. St. John Dudley Buxton. Sir Harold Gillies has been appointed emeritus consultant plastic surgeon at Rooksdown House, Basingstoke, on his retirement from active work at this hospital. In an advertisement by Boots Pure Drug Co. Ltd., which appeared in our advertisement columns last week the quotation from the Archives of Dermatology and Syphilis should have read : "... therapeutic results confirmed the finding of the prophylactic series in placing undecylenic acid—undecylenate powder first among the agents studied."
