HC Deb 30 July 1976 vol 916 c497W
Mr. Pardoe

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will confirm that when one of the two physiotherapists at Launceston hospital goes on holiday the superintendent physiotherapist is not permitted to increase the other sessions to cover.

Dr. Owen

During periods of paid holiday taken by the physiotherapists employed at Launceston Hospital appropriate arrangements are made, as in other hospital departments managed by the Plymouth Health District, to continue necessary treatment without adding to the cost of the service.
