HC Deb 20 May 1957 vol 570 c59W
33. Mr. Randall

asked the Minister of Health if he will make a statement on the steps being taken to develop departments in hospitals for the practice of preventive medicine; and what progress has been made in this regard since the inception of the National Health Service.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan:

Certain aspects of preventive medicine may require, and will obtain, the collaboration of any department of a hospital but I do not think the establishment of special departments would be appropriate.
