In this report for the London County Council, Winnicott describes the work of the Rheumatic Clinic in his care, with the aim of preventing heart disease. Winnicott notes that a sufficient number of doubtful cases of rheumatism and chorea were being sent from the school care committees to justify the setting apart of this clinic of one session a week, to deal almost exclusively with this type of case. The clinic does not seek a reputation as centre for the treatment of rheumatism, but has the object of sorting out possible rheumatic diseases and becoming responsible for providing common sense treatment of indirect value.
