HC Deb 02 May 1913 vol 52 cc1542-3W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the committee of management of the London Skin Hospital, 40, Fitzroy Square, are considering the question of the dismissal of Dr. W. F. Roach from their staff, of which, in common with other general medical practitioners, he is a member, on account of his having placed his name on the medical list under the National Insurance Act; and, if so, whether he will consider what steps are possible to protect medical men rendering service under the National Insurance Act from treatment of this character?


I have had no previous information as to this case. I find it difficult to imagine that a hospital deriving support from public subscriptions could contemplate such action as is suggested on the ground that a doctor has accepted duties under the provisions of an Act of Parliament.
