§ Mr. Snow
Area of Sunderland Executive Council At 1st October 1964 1967 Doctors providing full general medical services 70 76 (see note 2) Average number of patients on lists 2,759 2,915
1. The figures for 1967 are provisional.
2. Following the Sunderland Order 1967 the area of the Sunderland Executive Council was altered with effect from 1st April, 1967 to include 11 doctors previously in the area of the Durham Executive Council.
3. The true average number of patients per doctor will be slightly smaller than the average number on doctors' lists since it is not possible to eliminate all duplicate entries from lists.
