HC Deb 19 June 1973 vol 858 c67W
24. Mr. Raison

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will consider the provision of financial incentives to encourage doctors to move to areas where the supply of general practitioners is low.

Mr. Alison

Incentives are already available: initial practice allowances for additional doctors starting in under-doctored areas; designated area allowances payable to all doctors in areas where the shortage is long-standing or severe.
