HC Deb 06 December 1967 vol 755 c306W
Mr. Russell Johnston

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what provisions are being made for the recruitment of domiciliary nurses specialising in the care of the elderly.

Mr. Ross

The training of home nurses employed by local health authorities already includes the care of the elderly, and about two-thirds of the visits now paid by these nurses are to persons aged 65 and over.
