HC Deb 28 June 1965 vol 715 cc6-7W
Mr. Lomas

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the matron and other officials of the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary have recently visited Eire in an attempt to recruit 150 student nurses for the new hospital, due to be opened next year, at Lindley; and what action he has taken, or proposes to take, to encourage nurse recruitment in this country.

Mr. Loughlin

Yes. Officers of the Ministry have been discussing with officers of regional hospital boards ways of improving methods of recruitment. My right hon. Friend will shortly tell hospital authorities of new plans for publicity to support their local efforts.
