HC Deb 06 March 1961 vol 636 c4W
58. Mr. Sumner

asked the Minister of Health when the operating theatre recently closed at Farnborough Hospital, Kent, will be in use again; and if he will make a statement upon the reasons for its closure and the steps being taken to remedy them.

Miss Pitt

This theatre is now in partial use, and 17 sessions a week, compared with the normal 21 are being held in this and the twin theatre. Closure was due to lack of trained theatre nurses, which the hospital management committee is using every effort to make good.
