HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 c399W
89. Sir W. Teeling

asked the Minister of Health why Mr. James Cassins, about whom the hon. Member for Brighton, Pavilion, has sent him particulars, was discharged from St. George's Hospital two days after his operation before he was fit to leave, and with nowhere to go.

Mr. Braine

Mr. Cassins was discharged three days after his operation for varicose veins in accordance with the normal practice. Early ambulation is advised in such cases, the surgeon considered he was fit to leave, he was apparently agreeable and went home to his flat by car in the company of a friend.
