HC Deb 19 November 1953 vol 520 cc193-4W
126. Mr. Blenkinsop

asked the Minister of Health what action he has taken to help secure an improvement in the condition and equipment of general practitioners' surgeries and waiting rooms.

Mr. Iain Macleod

I understand that the Chairman of the General Medical Services Committee of the British Medical Association wrote last month individually to all the 20,000 or so general practitioners who are taking part in the Health Service calling their attention to their responsibilities in providing a proper standard of surgery and waiting room. I propose to await the results of this approach.
