HC Deb 18 March 1993 vol 221 c349W
Mr. Milburn

To ask the Secretary of State for health if she will make it her Department's policy to oblige general practitioners to include details of the accessibility of their surgeries in information for their patients.

Dr. Mawhinney

General medical practitioners are obliged by their terms of service to make available a practice leaflet to each patient on his or her list. This leaflet must specify whether the doctor's practice premises have suitable access for all disabled patients and, if not, the reasons why they are unsuitable for particular types of disability.
