44. Mr. W. T. Williams
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services in what hospital regions it is required that hospital medical staff shall live within 10 miles of their hospital; in what regions it is required that they shall live within 10 miles or within half an hour's travelling time; and upon what criteria this difference is based.
§ Mr. Alison
The model forms of contract recommended by the Department for consultants and medical assistants require their private residences to be not more than 10 miles by road from their hospital unless specific approval is given by the employing board to a greater distance.
