HC Deb 28 October 1987 vol 121 c302W
Mr. Wareing

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what plans he has to circulate a code of practice for doctors on the screening of patients who are at risk of hearing loss after certain infectious illnesses; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Scott

The Department would not normally issue guidance on matters of this sort, as the management of individual patients is the responsibility of the clinicians concerned.
