HC Deb 19 November 1971 vol 826 c240W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if, in addition to the information he issues from time to time in Prescribers' Journal on new developments in drug treatment of rheumatism and arthritis, he will issue to general practitioners further information concerning new development in therapy, surgery and bio-engineering for these conditions.

Mr. Alison

Information on clinical matters is normally disseminated through the established professional channels, and not by my Department. But perhaps the hon. Member would write to me if there is any particular aspect of the treatment of rheumatism and arthritis about which he considers doctors have insufficient information.
