HC Deb 07 July 1943 vol 390 c2109W
Mr. Perkins

asked the Secretary of State for Air what is the procedure for dealing with Women's Auxiliary Air Force personnel who are taken ill; and whether any instruction has been issued to compel an airwoman to stay in bed until visited by a medical officer or a nursing orderly?

Sir A. Sinclair

Airwomen who are taken ill report in person to the medical officer unless they do not feel well enough to do so, in which case arrangements are made for them to be visited by the medical officer, or in the first instance by a nursing orderly. As for the second part of the Question, instructions have been issued that the procedure for obtaining the services of a medical officer is to be made known to all airwomen. Further, all airwomen are instructed in sick parade procedure, including the necessity of remaining in bed until seen by the duty N.C.O. if, for any reason, they feel too unfit to get up.
