HC Deb 16 January 1913 vol 46 cc2270-1W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether any arrangements have yet been made to provide nursing for insured persons; whether such arrangements, if any, have been made with existing district nursing associations; whether these associations are willing to undertake the work; and how much it is proposed to pay per insured person for the nursing required?


The provision of nurses is a matter for the insurance committees and approved societies. The Commission have not yet received information from any committee or society as to the employment of nurses under medical benefit, but I believe some provision of the kind has been made in some cases in connection with sanatorium benefit.
