EDITORIAL COMMENTSoon we will be one year old. The fact that we have managed to survive for this length of time is in itself almost a miracle although it may be debatable what level of efficiency The Standard has maintained in relation to its original purpose i.e. a partnership between management and staff providing better two way communications. This is road strewn with difficulties and some pitfalls, but we feel we have gone a fair way toward making it smoother. I feel that in the next few months a real partnership will be arrived at - a fifty fifty sharing of effort, responsibility and sincerity by all concerned.
Social Therapy ReviewOn Tuesday this week, the flower arranging afternoon began after a winter with no blooms. It was organised for the benefit of our geriatric ladies on East and West wings. However, we hope to have it on a different ward each week with the help of those in charge. If you would like this venue on your ward please contact the Social Therapy Department. On Wednesday a coach trip was arranged for female 7 up and Male 7 up to a Variety Concert held at the Parr Hall, Warrington. It was a charity show staged by Dawsons of Warrington, which went on until 10.45 p.m. and was evidently very successful. There was no charge for the show but the coach fare was 15p per person. The weekly visits to the baths are now arranged for Tuesday evenings. It would be a great help if patients wishing to go would contact the department early in the week and make staff allocation a little easier. As you may know, the Regional Athletics meeting has been arranged for June 17th and entries must be in to Mr. Jolley, with the fee, by Tuesday 30th May. Training sessions have been arranged twice weekly, Tuesday 7.30 p.m., Thursday 7 p.m. It's up to you whether we have a team or not so we will be pleased to see you in the female gym on either or both of these two evenings,
