HC Deb 23 January 1967 vol 739 c174W
Mr. Will Griffiths

asked the Minister of Health whether he will ask the Manchester Regional Hospital Board to consider whether the proposed new outpatient department and improvements to the accident department at Ancoats Hospital, Manchester, should be commenced earlier than envisaged in the Hospital Building Programme, in view of the demands made upon Ancoats by the residential and industrial community in East Manchester.

Mr. K. Robinson

The planning of the new departments is proceeding urgently so that advantage may be taken of an earlier starting date if the Board's continual review of their programme shows this to be possible.
