HC Deb 13 February 1968 vol 758 c304W
Mr. William Price

asked the Minister of Health whether he will define the term chronically sick person as used by his Department.

Mr. K. Robinson:

Chronic sick patients in hospital are those needing long-term care for chronic disabilities or illnesses. For those not in hospital I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply to the hon. Member for Surbiton (Mr. Fisher) on 23rd January.—[Vol. 757, c.81–2.]
