HC Deb 11 May 1964 vol 695 c20W
63. Mr. Awbery

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that schoolchildren in Bristol have to wait for a long period for tonsil operations, which causes further deterioration in the child's health; and if he will take steps to provide greater facilities through the regional hospital boards for these children.

Mr. Braine

Non-urgent cases have to wait for several months but urgent cases are dealt with at once. The Regional Hospital Board intends to appoint an additional registrar and is considering the extension of operating facilities.
