HC Deb 20 May 1974 vol 874 c51W
Mr. George Grant

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what new proposals she has for recruiting male staff at Northgate Hospital, Morpeth, to alleviate acute staff problems.

Dr. Owen

Nurse recruitment is a matter for local management. I understand that the Northumberland Area Health Authority is examining ways of attracting more men into nursing at the hospital, such as offering more staff housing and subsidise transport.
