HC Deb 07 December 1944 vol 406 c752W
Mr. G. Hutchinson

asked the Minister of Health whether he will take steps to ensure that where an insured patient makes a complaint regarding his treatment by a dental surgeon, the dental surgeon against whom the complaint is made shall be furnished, either by the approved society or otherwise, with a copy of the patient's complaint before he is called upon to submit his observations to the regional dental officer of his Ministry.

Mr. Willink

Under the provisions of the National Health Insurance (Dental Benefit) Regulations dealing with the investigation of any question as to the treatment given by a dentist to an insured person the dentist must be supplied with a concise statement of the facts which form the subject matter of the question. If my hon. Friend will give me particulars of any case which he has in mind I will make inquiries.
