HC Deb 18 December 1952 vol 509 c230W
57. Colonel Stoddart-Scott

asked the Minister of Health the population served by the £200,000 health centre at Woodbury Down; to what extent other urban areas are to be covered by similar health centres; and if he will state his policy with regard to health centres.

Mr. Iain Macleod

The present population is estimated at about 17,000 but is expected to rise to about 23,000. Health centres are still in an experimental stage and future policy will depend on what we learn as we go along.
