§ Mr. Hastings
asked the Minister of Health if he will give instructions to Regional Hospital Boards that advertisements for senior specialist staff should appear in the medical Press and not in the lay Press only.
§ Mr. Bevan
Regional Hospital Boards are required by Regulation 5 (1) of the National Health Service (Appointment of Specialists) Regulations, 1948 (S.I. 1948 No. 1416) to advertise vacancies on the specialist staff of hospitals in two or more professional journals. If my hon. Friend has a particular case in mind where this has not been complied with I shall be glad to make inquiries of the board concerned.
