HC Deb 19 June 1973 vol 858 c68W
30. Mr. Ian Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether his Department will take steps to reduce the time taken to transfer patients' medical records from one doctor to another in a different area.

Mr. Alison

I am not aware that the present arrangements give rise to any general inconvenience for general practitioners or patients. Arrangements already exist for the immediate transfer of records which are requested urgently.
