HC Deb 08 February 1951 vol 483 c238W
117. Mr. Gammans

asked the Minister of Health what is the complement of beds for the Whittington Hospital, Highgate; how many beds cannot be used for various reasons; how this number compares with six months ago; and when it is expected that this hospital can be fully used.

Mr. Marquand

1,455, of which 1,071–20 less than on the 30th June, 1950—are now in use. The remaining 384 can be brought into use only as sufficient nursing staff becomes available.
