HC Deb 06 July 1964 vol 698 cc16-7W
Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Minister of Health when Salford Royal Hospital was built; what has been the total amount spent on the modernisation of the building; what are the industrial towns it serves; what hospital provision is provided for Eccles, Swinton, and Pendlebury; and by when this industrial area will be provided with a modern hospital.

Mr. Braine

1865; over £150,000 since 1948; the hospital meets part of the need of Salford, Worsley, Irlam, Stretford, Eccles, Swinton and Pendlebury but services are also provided by Hope Hospital, by hospitals in the West Manchester Group and by the United Manchester Hospitals; Hope Hospital is being redeveloped to provide a modern hospital; a new hospital is planned later to replace the Royal Hospital.
