HC Deb 11 April 1946 vol 421 c343W
81. Captain Gunter

asked the Minister of Health if he will take steps to improve the situation on Canvey Island, Essex, where a population of 8,000 persons is served by one medical practitioner.

Mr. Bevan:

I understand that the one resident doctor is not the only doctor who attends patients on the island, and that at least two others visit patients there. An immediate difficulty in improving facilities is said to be one of accommodation, and this is being investigated.
