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.
