HC Deb 09 May 1966 vol 728 cc26-7
36. Mrs. Knight

asked the Minister of Health if he will make a statement about the proposed future of Moseley Hall Hospital, Birmingham.

Mr. Loughlin

I must ask the hon. Member to await the results of the present review of the hospital plan.

Mrs. Knight

May I ask the hon. Gentleman to bear in mind the fact that this hospital deals at present with 2,000 E.N.T. admissions a year and that all local hospitals cannot possibly cope with this number because they are already overstrained?

Mr. Loughlin

The present building is a difficult one for this purpose. It is not suitable for either further modernisation or extension. I think the hon. Lady can take it that we have this in mind in the review.
