This directory of tuberculosis schemes in Great Britain and Ireland is of interest to American physicians mainly in that it indicates the close tie-up in the United Kingdom between preventive and therapeutic phases of the fight against tuberculosis, and also between governmental and voluntary agencies. Rough comparisons may also be made, so far as international comparisons have validity, between provisions for the tuberculous in the British Isles as compared with similar provisions in this country. In view of the numerous dispensaries and clinics available, even in counties with comparatively favorable tuberculosis death rates, there would seem to be little left for the private practitioner to do as far as tuberculosis is concerned.
