HC Deb 29 July 1975 vol 896 c426W
Mr. MacFarquhar

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how much extra the provision of a free family planning service by general practitioners will cost the National Health Service; whether GPs will receive remuneration for it; and, if so, at what rate.

Dr. Owen

The extra cost in 1975–76 will be about £9 million including supplies of drugs and devices. General practitioners will be paid annual fees of £3.50 per patient ordinarily or £10 for patients fitted with an intra-uterine device in the year.
