Description: London County Council's Special Nutrition Centre. Children and their mothers seated in a waiting room, a nurse standing at R; a woman enters with a boy, through the door facing us; panning round room; on the back of the door is a sight-test card.
Seated woman in white coat goes over notes with mother and daughter. Two women in white coats, seated separately; a mother with a baby in her arms attends as a young girl, naked to the waist, has her lungs/breathing listened to. Close-up of the girl and the stethoscope. The group of four, as the doctor turns the girl towards us; her chest looks a bit malformed - rickets? Close-up of the girl, shoulders-up, looking round and smiling. In a room with a dark glazed-brick dado, two topless boys stand by as another in shorts and braces walks in from R, past a doctor, to a strength meter, round which he walks. Close-up of the boy as he mounts the device and pulls on the handles of the meter. A seated boy has his right ear lob pricked by a doctor, while another holds his head still; then she bends down with a mouth pipette on a rubber tube, to take the blood sample.
