Scope and content

Correspondence between Rushworth's colleague Ian Patten, Project Leader at the Cancer Prevention Society, and various medical boarding centers (formerly known as Pneumoconiosis Medical Panels) over methods of lung biopsy and the issue of whether the then current edition of DHSS pamphlet NI.226 ('Pneumoconiosis and related occupational diseases', Paragraph 43: 'Diffuse mesothelioma') was misleading and therefore counterproductive.

Includes photocopy of the fatal accident inquiry into the death of Ronald Arthur Hill 3 June 1983 at Ruchill Hospital, Glasgow.
