HC Deb 16 November 1950 vol 480 cc182-3W
Earl Winterton

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the chronic understaffing existing in the Rampton and Moss Side hospitals; and what steps he is taking to deal with the matter.

Mr. Bevan

I am aware of the position, and constant efforts are being made to recruit additional staff. But the percentage of vacancies at these two hospitals is, in fact, lower than the average for mental institutions generally.
