HC Deb 13 March 1913 vol 50 cc427-8W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what provision has been made for the accommodation of insured persons requiring sanatoria treatment from Eastbourne; how many beds have been retained; how many persons have applied for such treatment; how many have been accommodated; and at what distance from the town is the sanatorium to which patients have been sent or offered to be sent?


Arrangements are made as occasion requires for the accommodation in existing sanatoria of insured persons recommended for such treatment. Out of twenty-five applications for sanatorium benefit from insured persons twelve were recommended by the medical adviser for treatment in sanatoria. Of these two have been accommodated at St. Leonard's-on-Sea, and six at Nayland, Colchester, two were considered unfit to travel, one was considered an unsuitable case by the institution, and the remaining patient is being sent to Nayland.
