HC Deb 11 June 1968 vol 766 c3W
27. Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Minister of Health what plans there now are for the provision of special facilities for the treatment of psychopathic patients; whether he is satisfied with this provision; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. K. Robinson

Many psychiatric hospitals, including the special hospitals, admit psychopathic patients who are thought likely to benefit from medical treatment. Some hospital authorities are developing special forms of care, which may however only be needed for a minority of such patients.
