HC Deb 10 July 1924 vol 175 cc2477-8W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what arrangements and appliances at present exist in the various workshops of His Majesty's dockyards for rendering first aid to men injured?


At the dockyards there are fully equipped surgeries, and resident medical officers are in attendance either at the surgeries or within call at their homes. Cases of injury are promptly attended to by the medical officers and the staffs at the surgeries. Large numbers of first-aid cabinets are distributed in the various workshops, etc., for use in minor injuries or where attention is necessary before fully qualified aid can be rendered, but any tendency to substitute first aid for qualified attention is discouraged.
