Orders of the Day — EQUAL PAY (No. 2) BILL: Catterick Accident After Care Centre (23 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: I am grateful to the hon. Member for Richmond, Yorks (Mr. Kitson) for raising the subject of the Catterick Accident After-Care Centre tonight. This represents a degree of co-operation between the different services involved that is thoroughly commendable: and everyone must be completely in sympathy with the aims of the road accident after-care scheme in the Richmond-Catterick area of the...

Willesden General Hospital (21 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: My hon. Friend the Member for Willesden, West (Mr. Pavitt) is rightly known and respected in the House for his concern in and knowledge about health matters. I have listened to what he has said with great interest. He also represents his constituency very actively. Tonight he has combined both his health and his constituency interests. I am grateful to him for giving me an opportunity of...

Willesden General Hospital (21 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: —as it is convenient to both the North Circular Road and to Western Avenue. It fully appreciates the public transport difficulties existing at present, but I understand that it intends that representations should be made to the Greater London Council on this point. The board does not think it could envisage Willesden as a complementary district hospital to Central Middlesex. This would...

MR. and MRS. Albert Carter (Transport Assistance) (16 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Croydon, South (Mr. Winnick) for having raised the difficulties of Mr. and Mrs. Carter and for the chance that he has provided to discuss them tonight. The fact that he has done this is an indication of the conscientious way in which he fulfils his constituency obligations and represents his constituents here at Westminster. As he has said, he...

MR. and MRS. Albert Carter (Transport Assistance) (16 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: I will be able to answer my hon. Friend's point as I continue my speech, because I want to say a word or two about some of the investigations being undertaken by my Department. I think that we can be proud of our record. Over the years since 1948 we have seen the vehicle provided for our invalids graduate from a wheelchair with a motor attachment to the present closed purpose-built machine...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: German Measles (Mass Immunisation) (13 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: We hope to be in a position to make a statement on this question shortly.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: German Measles (Mass Immunisation) (13 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: My information is that approximately 200 babies are born in this country with congenital abnormalities because their mothers had German measles early in their pregnancies. I agree that a vaccination campaign would enable us to reduce significantly the toll of this disease, but it may be that a selective campaign—concentrating, per- haps, on adolescent girls—would be more effective, in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Nurses (Training) (13 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: 10,162 in 1968–69 This figure is 52 per cent. of the number who qualified in that year and represents a wastage rate of about a third of those entering training in the year.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Nurses (Training) (13 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: Not all those who drop out are necessarily wasted to society. Some transfer to pupil training. My view is that a nurse's training provides a girl with knowledge and information that will be of help to her as a mother and a citizen even if she does not complete her course. I am conscious of the need to look into this problem in much more detail than has been done in the past. We have set up a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Nurses (Training) (13 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: There has not been any significant change in the proportion of girls dropping out of courses during training. As for the question of the cost of living in, the majority of nurses in this country now live out, and we must bear in mind the interests of those who live out as well as those who live in.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Dentists (13 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: Dentists practising in the general dental services are not required to keep my Department informed of their practice arrangements, nor do they have lists of patients for whose dental care they have a continuing responsibility.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Dentists (13 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: I remind my hon. Friend that the position of dentists is different from that of doctors under the National Health Service. Dentists do not have lists as doctors do, and do not, therefore, have a continuing relationship with their patients. I agree that problems arise in certain areas. They arise in some areas because of a shortage of dentists and in others because dentists are not prepared to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Disabled Persons (Aids Advice Centre) (13 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: I am considering the possibility of setting up such a centre.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Disabled Persons (Aids Advice Centre) (13 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: I do not entirely accept what the hon. Member says, but I agree that there is a need to make more widely known information about aids for the disabled, and in order to assist hon. Members I am hoping that my Department will be able to hold an exhibition of aids for the disabled in the Palace of Westminster during the summer months.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Disabled Persons (Vehicles) (13 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: The inquiry concerns a number of important questions that will require careful consideration and I cannot say at present when it will be completed.

Dr John Dunwoody: The hon. Member would not expect me to commit myself as to what my reaction might be when I have completed my study of a report that I have not examined.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Vasectomy (13 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: I am at present unable to add to my reply to my hon. Friend of 29th January. When our consultations with the medical profession are complete I will write to my hon. Friend.—[Vol. 794, c. 398.]

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Vasectomy (13 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: I know of the clinic in West Bromwich. I agree with much that my hon. Friends says. My concern is that we should, if possible, make this provision within the limits of the National Health Service. I hope to be able to make a definitive answer to the House in the fairly near future.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Vasectomy (13 Apr 1970)

Dr John Dunwoody: To my knowledge, there have been no objections on these grounds.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Anthrax (13 Apr 1970)
