HC Deb 18 February 1963 vol 672 c7W
Mr. Mason

asked the Minister of Health what is the present waiting list of people wishing to enter Barnsley hospitals for treatment and operations; how this figure compares with the waiting list of 12 months ago; and what further steps he intends taking to reduce the waiting list until the new hospital is built.

Mr. Braine

1,960 at 31st December last compared with 1,963 a year before. The hospital authority will seek the use of further theatre capacity and beds for reducing waiting lists.
