HC Deb 03 May 1938 vol 335 c691
33. Mr. David Adams

asked the Minister of Health what State facilities are now provided for the treatment of rheumatism and what extensions of these facilities are now being considered?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Health (Mr. Bernays)

Facilities for the treatment of this group of diseases are provided by most general hospitals and by a number of specialised voluntary institutions, and local authorities are increasingly making provision for the treatment of acute rheumatism in children. The medical advisers of the Department are in close co-operation with the various bodies concerned with combating, and with research into, rheumatic diseases in general.

Mr. De la Bère

Has the hon. Gentleman ever heard of Droitwich Spa?
