HC Deb 09 June 1959 vol 606 c789
10. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what facilities exist within the National Health Service for the treatment of migraine.

Mr. J. N. Browne

The full range of facilities offered by the general practitioner and hospital specialist services is available to sufferers from migraine.

Mr. Rankin

That, of course, does not meet the point contained in the Question. Is the hon. Gentleman satisfied that the facilities that are offered within the National Health Service are in keeping with the widespread nature of this functional disease? Is there anything in Scotland to compare with some of the specialist clinics which operate in England to deal with this disease?

Mr. Browne

I have no evidence to suggest that the facilities available are unsuitable, and the method of clinical treatment is a matter for the individual doctor to decide.
