At the end of April, the waiting list was 465 and 102 had been waiting more than 6 months. The regional hospital board have taken various steps to deal with the problem, including the improvement of facilities for home care, the development of facilities for rehabilitation, and the transfer,150W where possible, of medically fit patients to accommodation provided by the local authority.
