HC Deb 19 February 1960 vol 617 cc162-3W
Commander Pursey

asked the Minister of Health the arrangements for the dispensing of spectacles prescriptions for out-patients at St. Thomas's Hospital; and whether the prescriptions for children are sent to parents, in the usual way, for their choice of optician, or whether parents and children have to go to the hospital for dispensing.

Miss Pitt

On completion of the sight test the patient or parent of a child needing spectacles is given a prescription which he can leave to be dispensed by the hospital optician or take with the necessary form to an outside optician of his own choice.
