HC Deb 02 July 1952 vol 503 cc45-6W
Mr. Patrick Maitland

asked the Minister of Health how he proposes to secure dental patients' National Registration numbers so that dentists practising under the Health Service can obtain the compensation payments due to them, when registration numbers are no longer recorded on ration books and the public has been freed of the obligation to carry identity cards.

Mr. Iain Macleod

Patients have been asked to insert their National Health Service number on their medical card and any patient unaware of his number should write to his local executive council, which will inform him of it.
