HC Deb 11 May 1950 vol 475 cc75-6W
35. Mr. Perkins

asked the Minister of Health the number of people in the Stroud urban and rural districts who have been compulsorily transferred from one doctor to another during the last six months.

Mr. Bevan

I understand that 757 persons have been transferred from a doctor, who had more than a maximum list, to his partner. They all, of course, are perfectly free to choose any other doctor if they want to.
