Example text

On the advice of Miss C. M. Beswick, the matron of Seacliff Mental Hospital, Truby King chose as his ‘community nurse’ a staff member of the hospital, Joanna McKinnon. While she was not a registered nurse, she was a ‘bright, winsome’ young Scottish woman90 who learnt the formula and proceeded to teach mothers and caregivers how to modify cows’ milk. McKinnon’s obvious local success encouraged King to arrange for her to propagate his ideas more widely. Towards the end of 1905 she was boarded in Dunedin with the Murray family, and in 1908 she married their son.

52 As a fixed sum was being allocated, he was happy for further branches to be set up and further nurses employed. 53 Whether or not they were personally inspired by the cause of national efficiency, they certainly used it to their advantage. 54 They also used their political influence and contacts in the fight against the Health Department. 55 This had every chance of success since Plunket’s vicepresident was the wife of acting Prime Minister James Allen. Plunket was also generally supported by the press.

Plunket Society Annual Report 1929–30 By mid-1908 there were six separate societies. In June, at Lady Plunket’s suggestion, they became branches of the New Zealand Society for the Health of Women and Children, informally known as the Plunket Society. The Dunedin branch became the governing body of the society, because the baby hospital and nurse training centre were located there. Lady Plunket sought the advice of the Chief Health Officer, Dr James Mason, about a name for the nurses she intended to employ under the new society’s aegis.
