§ Mr. Simon Mahon
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many medical practitioners are on the list of the Bootle Executive Committee; how many of these doctors live in the county borough of Bootle; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Alison
There are 33 doctors on the Bootle Executive Council's medical list who provide full general medical services and have a majority of patients in the Council's area. Two live in the area; the rest live not far away, and all but one of the practices have main surgeries in the area. All are subject to the same terms of service under their contracts with the Council to provide medical care for their patients in Bootle.
