HC Deb 21 November 1966 vol 736 c217W
57. Mr. Winnick

asked the Minister of Health if his Department intend to encourage in other areas health check clinics similar to that recently opened for a week in Epsom, Surrey, details of which have been sent to him.

Mr. K. Robinson

The screening clinic at Epsom was planned as a trial, and I shall be interested to see the evaluation of its results when available. As I said in reply to my hon. Friend on 27th June, I am not satisfied on present evidence that this method of detecting disease should be recommended to health authorities generally.
