HC Deb 07 July 1969 vol 786 c171W
11. Mr. Hamling

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what plans he has for raising nursing standards in the care of the elderly in the mental hospitals.

Mr. Snow

In many of these hospitals the nursing is already good. We intend to promote good practice by better provision for the training of staff, diversion of more resources to long stay hospitals, and other measures, including the establishment of a Hospital Advisory Service.
