HC Deb 25 October 1962 vol 664 c186W
Mr. K. Robinson

asked the Minister of Health what response he has had from hospital authorities to his request that they should review their procedures designed to obviate surgical operations on the wrong patient or on the wrong part of the body; if he is aware that such accidents appear to have increased during the last year for which figures are available; and what further action he proposes to take.

Mr. Powell

They have complied; I know of no evidence of an increase; none at present.
