HC Deb 06 July 1964 vol 698 c15W
Mr. Dudley Smith

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that most London teaching hospitals now supply one thermometer per patient; and if he will encourage all hospitals in England and Wales to adopt the same practice.

Mr. Braine

I understand that this is a rapidly growing practice in acute hospitals throughout the country. The provision of one thermometer per bed in these hospitals is recommended in my Department's Hospital Equipment Notes.
