HC Deb 20 February 1985 vol 73 cc495-6W
Mr. Kirkwood

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) what provisions he proposes to ensure that patients living in remote areas far removed from chemists' shops will continue to have ready access to preparations programme, and the funding of five mental illness pilot schemes under the "Care in the Community" programme, are designed to help both these groups. We are encouraged by the growth in the community services which is recorded in the Department's annual report 1984.
