The Strike of Army Surgeons. Concession of the Employers





Medical Practitioners, War

    Discusses an extract from a report in the British Medical Journal announcing that medical officers in the Army are to be given higher status and better pay. Hopes that army surgeons will benefit from these improved conditions. Argues that, while the British Medical Journal hopes that the Army Medical Department will soon become popular, 'Mistrust' might postpone that state of affairs 'indefinitely'. Suggests that the moment of popularity could be brought forward with more convincing promises of higher status and better pay for army medical officers.
