Watch on health hazards

Watch on health hazards

The medical health service at the University needs additional facilities.

The director, Dr I. C. Fleming, said he would not specify requirements but the results of a report before the University Council would be known within a few weeks.

Dr Fleming said there are two sides to the health services' work—screening of first year students and the diagnosis of routine complaints.

When asked about the importance of such work, Dr Fleming said he was surprised to note the incidence of high risk conditions among students.

Congenital and acquired heart disorders, cancers, blood diseases, liver and kidney complaints and diabetes were picked up by the screening.

But he stressed these results conformed with overseas findings.
