3.  Nurses in the community: a manpower study. 
High priority is at present being given to the expansion of health visiting and home nursing services as part of the change of emphasis from institutional to community care. The aim of this study was to provide nurse managers in two regional health authorities with basic information about community nurses with could be used for service planning and development. The results of the study emphasise the particular problems of staffing the community nursing service in inner London, where home nurse and health visitors are younger, more recently appointed, and relatively less experienced than staff in other parts of the regions. High turnover rates and chronic recruitment difficulties in inner London prevent nurse managers from maintaining both the level and the quality of the services they aim to provide. Until these problems are remedied there is little prospect of achieving any significant shift in the balance of care in inner London.

4.  Deaths from ischaemic heart disease and infant mortality in England and Wales. 
Death rates from ischaemic heart disease (IHD) in English and Welsh counties are correlated, in both men and women, with the infant mortality rates of those counties when the individuals whose deaths are considered were young, thus confirming previous findings in Norway. In England and Wales, however, there is an equally good correlation between deaths from IHD and infant mortality patterns up to and including that for the same time period as the IHD deaths. The British data provide no grounds for concluding from these relationships that living conditions during early life per se bear a causal relationship to deaths from IHD.
