HC Deb 19 December 1963 vol 686 c259W
Mr. Mason

asked the Minister of Health how many beds are available in the Barnsley group of hospitals for the chronic sick; how many persons are on the waiting list; and what is the average length of waiting time before admission is obtained.

Mr. Braine

At 30th September, 1963, the figures were 187 and 60. I cannot give an average waiting time but there were 156 admissions from the waiting list in the previous twelve months.
