§ Captain Kerby
asked the Minister of Health how many cases have been reported to him in the last year of general practitioners charging fees to National Health Service patients; and how many of these cases he has referred to the General Medical Council for disciplinary action.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
Four general practitioners were found in 1965 to have charged fees to National Health Service patients. One has been, and the others are being reported to the General Medical Council: whether the Council take disciplinary action is not a matter for me.
