HC Deb 12 August 1919 vol 119 c1116W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether lie is aware that notice has been given to stop the medical and surgical treatment of pensioners and discharged soldiers at the Ilford Emergency Hospital for the towns of Ilford, Barking, and district, some of these men badly requiring treatment, having had to leave their military hospitals too soon; and whether he will make arrangements for the doctors to be paid for continuing the work which they have done gratuitously in the past?


My right hon. Friend is aware that the authorities of the Ilford Emergency Hospital have given notice to terminate the treatment at their hospital of pensioners and discharged soldiers at the end of next month, owing to lack of accommodation. Arrangements will be made at the earliest possible date for providing the necessary and suitable treatment for discharged men in the areas mentioned.
