HC Deb 01 November 1988 vol 139 cc591-2W
70. Mr. Fearn

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what action he intends to take to ensure that family practitioner committees conduct regular inspections of general practitioners surgeries.

Mrs. Currie

Family practitioner committees already inspect doctors' surgery premises on a regular basis and the Department will continue to monitor, during the course of FPC performance reviews, the effectiveness of their inspection programmes.
