Abstract

Mr Bailey uses the statistical theory of queues to calculate the number of beds in a hospital, the number and length of clinical sessions, and the appointment system, necessary to provide the corresponding services with a defined amount of waiting on the part of patients. The article is interesting as exemplifying the practical application of modern statistical theory as well as dealing with a subject of general concern.
