HC Deb 19 February 1931 vol 248 c1437
48. Mr. KINLEY

asked the Minister of Health whether it is the intention to set up a centralised pathological service in connection with public mental hospitals?


In some areas the local authority has provided a central laboratory for the several hospitals belonging to it. It is hoped, without prejudice to the principle of each hospital having a laboratory of its own, that such centralisation may be developed elsewhere, particularly where the laboratory service can be based on the medical school of a university. But it is not intended to attempt to set up a single central unit for this purpose.
