Mr. Barber

Details of the new and substantially remodelled hospitals started since 31st October, 1963, are as follows: —

Nottingham City Hospital

First phase about £750,000; started 4th November. This phase, which comprises the remodelling of existing ward units, will be spread over several years to avoid dislocation. Other phases, estimated to cost about £2 million, are planned to start in 1964 and 1965 and proceed concurrently.
