HC Deb 15 December 1948 vol 459 c159W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that, as in a case submitted to him, there is no provision for radio-therapeutic treatment under the new health services for insured persons who are bedridden at home and cannot go to hospital; and whether he will remedy this omission.

Mr. Bevan

I am advised that the limited physiotherapy facilities and staff at present available can be used to most advantage at hospitals and clinics. Regional hospital boards are, however, authorised to arrange exceptionally for home treatment.
