HC Deb 16 November 1939 vol 353 cc869-70W
Mr. Groves

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that two medical men are brought from Golders Green to Seven Sisters Road to examine recruits three days a week and that one of these men only qualified since the last war; that there are in Islington, medical men who served in the last war and who are fully qualified for this work, who have asked for their names to be included in the list of those applying for such work; and if he will consider a more equitable arrangement whereby these medical boards should be appointed by a rota, so that the majority of medical practitioners should participate in the work?

Mr. E. Brown

Members of the two medical boards held at the centre men- tioned are drawn from panels containing the names of 26 practitioners selected, with general regard to their convenience of access to the centre, from lists of London practitioners supplied by the British Medical Association to the medical officers of the Ministry of Health. Medical men in Islington or elsewhere in London who desire to undertake this work should communicate with the secretary of the Local Emergency Committee of the British Medical Association so that they may be considered when further appointments are made to the London panels.
