Mr. David Atkinson

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will list those professions which are covered by the Professions Supplementary to Medicine Act 1960; what plans she has to review the Act and to extend it to include further such professions; and if she will make a statement.

Dr. Mawhinney

The Act currently covers chiropodists, dietitians, medical laboratory technicians, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, radiographers and orthoptists. Under section 10 of the Act, it is for the Council for Professions Supplementary to Medicine to propose any extension of its scope to other groups. There are no plans at present to review the Act.
