HC Deb 06 May 1948 vol 450 cc149-50W
72. Mr. Bowden

asked the Minister of Health if under his regulations a doctor now employed as an assistant may on 5th July commence a separate practice from his principal, providing patients wish to be placed on his panel and the district is not considered to be over doctored, or must he commence outside of the area in which he is now practising as an assistant doctor.

Mr. Bevan

With the agreement of the Medical Practices Committee, an assistant may, on or after 5th July, practise as a principal in any area under the National Health Service, but the agreement of the Committee would not relieve him from any restrictions imposed by any personal legal agreement previously entered into with principal.
