HC Deb 08 April 1968 vol 762 cc184-5W
Mr. Marten

asked the Minister of Health what proposals he has for dealing with the shortage of nursing staff at Banbury Hospital; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. K. Robinson

Every effort is being made 'by the hospital management committee to recruit trained and other nursing staff. Meanwhile the National Health Service Reserve is providing valuable assistance.

The first pupils from the new State Enrolled Nurses' School will join the staff this month and it is hoped that this school will progressively help to make good staff deficiencies.
