HC Deb 10 July 1967 vol 750 c21W
Sir R. Russell

asked the Minister of Health how many local authorities have co-opted local medical practitioners on to sub-committees of their health committees instead of on to the main committee.

Mr. Snow

The available information is incomplete but shows that six local authorities have co-opted general practitioners on to sub-committees instead of the main health committee. I understand that one such co-option was refused by the medical profession locally. In addition five authorities havead hoc committees, with general practitioner representation, for the purpose of promoting the co-ordination of local authority and general practitioner services.
