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 ensure that all general practitioners have direct access for their patients to open access physiotherapy.

Dr. Mawhinney

Direct access to physiotherapy is increasingly available. The precise mix of local services is a matter for health authority purchasers, in consultation with general practitioners, and for GP fund holders.
