HC Deb 27 July 1964 vol 699 c184W
Mr. Dudley Smith

asked the Minister of Health what the result has been of his inquiries about outpatient delays at the London teaching hospitals; if he is satisfied that the governors of the hospitals concerned are now fully conscious of the need for constant examination of the outpatient problem and the time taken to deal with each individual patient; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Barber

Yes; I am satisfied that the boards are fully conscious of this need; as I told my hon. Friend on 23rd March, I intend to review the matter later in the year. I shall do this when I have completed discussions on the recent study and am ready to issue fresh guidance.
