HC Deb 15 December 1958 vol 597 c152W
87. Mr. Hastings

asked the Minister of Health if he will give instructions that the name and address of every child under 10 years of age who is admitted to hospital for burns and scalds shall be at once communicated to the medical officer of health of the locality in which the child was living when the accident occurred so that advice as to the prevention of such accidents may be tendered to those responsible.

Mr. R. Thompson

My right hon. and learned Friend has already asked hospital authorities to co-operate with medical officers of health by supplying them with certain information about persons of any age requiring hospital treatment as a result of accidents in the home. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of the relevant memorandum.
