§ 21. Mr. Peter Freeman
asked the Minister of Health whether he will arrange to have available a number of priority 598 dockets for the use of medical officers of health for the supply of blankets for use when patients are unable to obtain immediate admission to hospital and have to be temporarily treated at home because of lack of nursing staff or hospital accommodation, as is already being done in the case of expectant mothers.
§ Mr. Freeman
Is my right hon. Friend aware that there are large numbers of cases of tuberculosis which have been diagnosed as a result of radiography, and that many of these cases will need such help?
