HC Deb 09 February 1922 vol 150 cc324-5W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the fact that the private medical practitioners of the Willesden district are attempting to bring professional pressure to bear upon the medical staff of the urban district council of Willesden, with a view to causing the cessation of the medical service that has been provided for the public by the district council; and whether he proposes to take any steps to protect the interests of the medical staff and to secure the continuation of those necessary public medical services which are so popular with the public?


I have been in communication with the Willesden Urban District Council and the British Medical Association in regard to the medical services provided by the council, but I am not aware of any professional pressure which is being brought to bear on the council's medical staff by private practitioners in Willesden.
