Mr BUCHANAN (MCMILLAN, VICTORIA) - My question to the Minister for Health relates to the payments made to doctors under the pensioner medical service. The present arrangement is for payment of 16s. for each visit to a doctor's surgery and £1 for each home visit a doctor makes to a pensioner, even when pensioners are grouped together in an aged persons home. No payment is made for the time a doctor spends treating pensioners in hospitals. Will the Minister examine the position to see whether this is an anomaly?
