HC Deb 17 March 1913 vol 50 c713W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether a deposit contributor who has received treatment in a sanatorium, and is discharged from there owing to his or her condition being unsuitable for further treatment in the sanatorium, is entitled to receive any other kind of medical relief in his or her home?


Yes, Sir. A deposit contributor discharged from a sanatorium in the circumstances mentioned would be eligible for sanatorium benefit at home, including medical treatment and the supply of medicines and other articles ancillary to such treatment. He would also draw sickness benefit from the money standing to his account.
