HC Deb 08 December 1949 vol 470 cc174-5W
89. Mr. Piratin

asked the Minister of Health whether the Dental Whitley Council has now been established; if it has met; and whether any decision has yet been reached regarding salaries in the school dental service.

Mr. Blenkinsop:

I am not yet able to add anything to the reply to my hon. Friend the Member for East Wolverhampton (Mr. Baird) on 17th November.

Maternity Hospital,


Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the Maternity Hospital, West Hylands, Cuckfield, Sussex, is staffed by general practitioners belonging to one medical firm; that other general practitioners in the area are forbidden access to patients in the hospital, though some of these may have been patients of doctors not included on the staff; that representations made to the South-Eastern Regional Hospital Board have produced no result; and if he will take measures to allow patients admitted to the hospital to see their own doctors.

Mr. Sevan:

This is not a general practitioner hospital but a unit of a specialist hospital.
