New Zealand Medical Services in Middle East and Italy

Admissions to Other Than New Zealand Hospitals

Admissions to Other Than New Zealand Hospitals

In July 1944, 44 officers and 536 other ranks were admitted temporarily to other than New Zealand hospitals. By the end of the month only 100 remained. In August the admissions were 46 officers and 574 other ranks, and 189 remained at the end of the month.

The large number recorded was due largely to the staging of cases at British units on the line of evacuation during this period; 2 General Hospital at Caserta was a long way from the front at Florence and many cases were admitted to hospitals sited in Rome. Special cases, mainly neurosurgical and maxillo-facial, were treated in British hospitals by arrangement, but their numbers were never large.
