HC Deb 13 July 1949 vol 467 c28W
Mr. Hastings

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether, in the case of personnel discharged from the Navy for pulmonary tuberculosis, it is the practice to send the necessary précis of case notes, together with X-ray findings to the civilian doctors who will be in charge.

Mr. Dugdale

Notification of a case of pulmonary tuberculosis invalided from the Royal Navy is sent to the Ministry of Health who pass it to the appropriate regional hospital for them to arrange the necessary treatment. When the regional hospital board nominate the sanatorium or the board's chest physician in whose care the patient will be placed, full particulars of the case including X-ray films are made available.
