§ 53. Mr. Stonehouse
asked the Minister of Health, what steps are required for the establishment of a group medical practice in conjunction with a health centre; and whether his Department is assisting in the establishment of such a centre in Wednesbury.
§ Mr. Braine
The provision of facilities for general practice in a health centre is a matter for consultation between the local health authority and the local executive council. The Ministry is always ready to advise. Staffordshire County Council has not so far asked my right hon. Friend to approve a specific proposal to provide a health centre at Wednesbury.
