This series comprises four volumes relating to clinic and social service visits:

Three volumes comprise work books kept by Lowood, Pialba and Howard clinics. They include details such as clinic attendances per date, number of children, age group, sent to the doctor/hospital, test feeds, artificial feeds and the weather on the day. Names of the mother and children are sometimes included.

One of the volumes refers to social service visits to mothers of newborns who were unable to attend a centre owing to multiple births or prematurity of babies. During a home visit, a nursing sister would check the weight of the baby, carry out test feeds and give advice on feeding and baby care. From 1941 - 1944, the records include visits by nurses to mothers at home with mainly twins or triplets. Details include the date, mother's name, address and remarks. A record of the names of nursing sisters and the number of social service visits per week from 1951-1965 is also included.
