HC Deb 01 November 1911 vol 30 cc853-4

asked what arrangements will be made for the provision of medical attendance upon an insured person who happens to fall ill outside the district covered by the panel of doctors who attend upon the members of the approved society to which he belongs?


The hon. Member is under a misapprehension in supposing that a panel of doctors will be appointed for an approved society. The panel will be appointed for the area of a local health committee. The administrative details necessary to provide for the temporary or permanent migration of insured persons from one such area to another can be dealt with by the regulations to be made by the Insurance Commissioners under Clause 14.
