HC Deb 06 July 1956 vol 555 cc142-3W
Dr. D. Johnson

asked the Minister of Health who the candidates for appointment were to the surgical sessions advertised by the West Dorset Group Hospitals interviewed by the selection committee of the South-West Metropolitan Region Hospital Board in August, 1955; what length of time each of the latter had practised surgery in Dorset; and who was the selected candidate.

Mr. Turton

The successful candidate was Mr. G. Krafft, M.S. (Lond.), F.R.C.S. (Eng.), M.B., B.S. (Lond.), L.R.C.P. (Lond.). Six other candidates were interviewed, of whom three had practised surgery in Dorset for five, seven and 20 years respectively. It is not the normal practice to publish the names of unsuccessful candidates.
