HC Deb 07 December 1950 vol 482 cc518-9
37. Miss Hornsby-Smith

asked the Minister of Health when the non-priority waiting list for deaf aids was closed at King's College Hospital; when it is likely to be reopened and the estimated number of patients certified by their local hospitals as requiring a deaf aid who are waiting to go on this list and be fitted by King's College Hospital.

Mr. Bevan

The answer to the first part of the Question is, May, 1949, and to the last, 2,110. I am informed that from next month the waiting list system is to be re-organised so as to ensure that a fair proportion of patients from each local hospital concerned are fitted each month.
