HC Deb 24 July 1967 vol 751 cc17-8W
72. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Minister of Health what steps he is taking to interest British doctors overseas in returning to medical work in this country.

Mr. K. Robinson

I am arranging for an interviewing team of five, headed by a Principal Medical Officer from my Department, to visit the United States and Canada early in the autumn. The project is being publicised in the medical Press and in journals circulating in North America, and a number of inquiries have already been received as a result from British doctors interested in returning here. The team will meet as many doctors as possible in various centres, and will offer appointments in the hospital service, or introductions to general practice or to Hospital Boards.
