HC Deb 20 June 1966 vol 730 cc5-6W
47. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Health whether he is in negotiation with the appropriate authority for the establishment of a university degree course in nursing; and what universities are concerned.

Mr. Loughlin

No; but my right hon. Friend has approved a scheme starting in October to combine nurse training at St. George's Hospital with a degree course in an appropriate subject at Battersea, and I understand that several other hospitals are discussing similar combined schemes with Universities.
