HC Deb 15 December 1949 vol 470 c298W
44. Mr. Odey

asked the Minister of Health why it has been decided that the Beverley Cottage Hospital shall cease to be a general practitioner hospital as from 1st January next; and why this decision has been taken without any consultation with the Hospital Management Committee, the members of the public in Beverley and district or the local medical profession in contravention of the advice given to regional boards in his Department's Circular RHP 49 (132).

Mr. Bevan

I understand that the board took their decision before my circular was issued, but that they have now asked the Management Committee to consider the practitioners' representations. Their object is to make full use of beds, staff and facilities which have not been fully used up to now.

Forward to
