Copy letter signed by P. McGilligan addressed to Noël C. Browne, Esquire TD, - 'I have been considering the official minute referred to in your letter of the 6th March regarding capitation fees for General Practitioners under the Mother and Child Health Service. The Scheme, as previously submitted proposed that the domiciliary care of children would be offered by District Medical Officers only. The proposal now submitted to allow Private General Practitioners to participate in the Scheme for domiciliary care of children is an entirely new feature.
The latest Scheme also proposes to provide for domiciliary care of children in areas outside the four County Boroughs. This is also a new feature as you will see by referring to paragraph 4 of your Department's official minute (H/1949) Ilgheathach) of the 3rd August, 1949. ...
The immediate introduction of this Service in rural areas will make the Scheme much more costly in the earlier years than was earlier years than was previously estimated.
I consider it necessary that the authority of the Government should be got for the revised Scheme now submitted, in view of the two completely new features in it.' 14 March 1951,
