British doctor, G. N. ilarsh, had heard mostly glow- ng accounts of financial and other satisfactions in Canadian practice, while G. P. Sweeny rom Burlington had received a mostly gloomy picture of social- zerf medicine. There were no registration robtems and each doctor re- vived roughly the income of the man be was replacing. OMB THINGS BETTER Writing in the current issue of the weekly magazine, published y the British Medical Associa- ted, the Canadian doctor says le "had to admit many aspects D( the British health system were indeed superior." "It has been my impression jat a group general practice in Great Britain can certainly af- Vo decision on takeover of oil firm OTTAWA (CP) External Affairs .Minister MitcheU Sharp said Tuesday no decision has yet been reached on the bid by in American firm to take over Home Oil of Calgary, last major Canadian-owned oil company. Discussions are still going on, told the Commons in reply- ng to T. C. Douglas, the New >emocrat leader. Mr. Douglas earlier had un- successfully sought an emer- gency debate on what he said is he imminent takeover of Home by Ashland Inc. of Kentucky. Speaker Lucien Lamoureux ruled that the subject could be discussed Wednesday and rhursday in the final two days of the six-day debate on the )ec. 3 budget. Mr. Douglas asked the gov- ernment to exercise the same lowers as it had last year to )revent Denison uranium mines rom f ailing into the control of non-residents. Mr. Sharp said the case with oil is "not quite as clear" as it lad been with uranium. He promised that the govern- ment would do everything possi- )Ie to see that Home Oil re- mains in Canadian hands. In Edmonton Don Getty, Progressive Conservative MLA Tor Edmonton Strathcona West, today asked Albertans to indicate how they feel about he anticipated sale of Home Oil Co. of Calgary to Ameri- can interests. Mr. Getty told a news con- 'erence that pubic response is needed because little or nothing is being done in Alberta to keep Home Oil a Canadian company. Mr. Getty said the Conserva- tive Party is disappointed by the apparent lack of actioni or even interest, shown by the So- cial Credit government in a company which has the ma- jority of its assets in the prov- ince. "We want to find out It there is a Canadian interest. If they don't really care will be a non-issue." then it Defence chief in Norway OSLO (Reuler) Defence Minister Donald Macdonald of Canada who arrived here Mon- day night on an official visit, had talks Tuesday with Gunnar Hellesen, his Norwegian coun- terpart, on joint defence prob- lems within the framework of NATO. Earlier Tuesday he was re- ceived in audience by King Olav at the royal palace after calling on Premier Per Borten and Foreign Minister Svenn Stray. Macdonald also placed a wreath at the memorial to Nor- wegian resistance fighters who were shot at the Akershus for- tress castle during the Ger- man occupation of the Second World War. ford the practising family doc- tor stimulating rewarding professional and social life." Sweeny says he returned to Canada feeling "quite humbled" by aspects of the British system which he felt could help Ms group deliver better community first-contact health care. In addition to the five doctors in his British group caring for patients, there was a backup team of one health vis- itor, four uursec, one midwife, one mental welfare officer, a secretary and four reception- ists. He worked in specially-de- signed rooms "much superior to the average general practition- er's surgery in and found this representative of var- ious British centres he visited. Whole he missed the admitting and treating privileges in gen- eral hospitals, which family doctors mostly lack in Britain, he found the institution of the midwife a help in sharing the workload of normal deliveries. HEAVY ON PRESCRIPTIONS It was his impression that British doctors tended to write more and larger prescriptioos nan clinically necessary and that many workers requested sickness certificates for minor ailments. But Sweeny said there seemed less "neuroticism" about health and checkups ttan in Canada. He found the government's in- creasing financial support for group practice a great tocen- ive. The absence of the Cana- dian item-of-service payment system gave the doctor no urge "fill his surgery with unnec- essary repeat attendances or leadth examinations." His over-all impression was that British general practice "is much better organized, both at the national and local level, ian it is in Canada." He also was deeply struck by the "re- spect and esteem" in which the British patient holds his family feature which the British exchange physician missed sharply during his five months in Ontario. Dr. Marsh, in his account, said he learned a good deal Erom Canadian medical practice but "returned happily" to his British office feeling that the system here "has much to teach Canadian general practitioners about community medicine." The Burlington practice con- sisted of four doctors.working from self-owned premises four nurses and four book-keep- ers. They cared for about patients, making only one-fifth of the weekly number of house calls in Britain. LOOKS AFTER KIDS Much of Marsh's office time was spent on preventive medi- cine and the policy, followed by many practices in that part of Ontario, of having all child care up to age 20 carried out by the doctor, even when patients were in good health. The annual checkup habit re- sulted in his group members feeling that so many healthy pa- tients were consulting them thai those with illnesses had to be dealt with faster than was clini- cally desirable, Marsh said. "The Canadian patient seems to have an inordinate faith in such investigations." On the other hand, he formed the opinion that the Canadian worker tended to remain at his job with minor ailments and did not bother the doctor for certifi cates to stay home. He concludes by finding, did Ms Canadian counterpart that the Canadian doctor-patien relationship is not as happy as in Britain. He found the Cana dian patient tends to be suspi cious of his doctor, demandinj explanations and questioning di agnoses. "Esteem for the profession seems slight." Soviet slander sentences slay I MOSCOW A Soviet Court upheld here the three-year lahor-camp sentence i imposed on Andrei Amalrik, j convicted of slandering the So- 1 viet Union. The three-year sen- tence of his co-defendant, Lev Ubozhko was also upheld. Am- alrik is best known for his book Will the Soviet Union Sur- vive until 1984. Ubozhko w a s charged with possessing a let- ter from Amalrik. Govt. won't press plan for pipeline OTTAWA ICP) Acting Prime Minister Mitchell Sharp said Tuesday that the govern- ment has no intention to take the initiative in having an oil pipeline built between Western Canada and Montreal. If such a project was justified by economics, he was sure com- panies would file applications to build such a line. Mr. Sharp said in the Commons. Replying to a flurry of ques- tions from Eldon Woolliams North) and New Democrat Under T. C. Doug- las, Mr. Sharp also said that a published report that Eastern Canada has oil reserves for only 15 days is incorrect. The reserves are good for 60 days, Mr. Sharp said, and he does not foresee any emergency arising from threats of oil- producing slates in the Persian Gulf to cut off supplies to North America.
