HC Deb 21 September 1915 vol 74 c332W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War what hospital provision, apart from lunacy control and association, with its industrial and social prejudice, has been provided where uncertifiable cases of nerve disturbance and loss of mental balance amongst the rank and file, requiring special and continued treatment, can be placed under special medical care?


Cases of the kind mentioned are treated in the neurological sections of twenty-three military hospitals in the United Kingdom. Accommodation for these cases is also afforded by the Springfield House Hospital, Wandsworth, and the Red Cross Military Hospital, Maghull, near Liverpool. I would also refer the hon. Gentleman to the oral reply I gave to the hon. Member for the Attercliffe Division on the 16th September.
