HC Deb 26 January 1984 vol 52 c702W
Mr. Fisher

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what jurisdiction a general manager, proposed by the Griffiths report, will have over a senior medical officer's clinical freedom, if the Griffiths report is implemented.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

No changes that the Government may introduce as a result of the Griffiths report will affect a consultant's clinical freedom to treat his patients according to his professional judgment.
