HC Deb 30 April 1968 vol 763 cc160-1W
Mr. Coleman

asked the Minister of Health when he anticipates that work will commence on the rebuilding of the District Base Hospital at Neath on its present site, in accordance with the decision already announced by him, in view of the fact that the delay in implementing the decision is proving to be to the disadvantage of the population served by the Neath General Hospital.

Mr. K. Robinson

Some preliminary work is already in hand at this hospital and the Welsh Hospital Board hope to commence the construction of a new maternity unit by the end of 1968. Thereafter the development of the hospital will need to be considered in the light of the recommendation in the Report of the Royal Commission on Medical Education that a new medical school should be established at Swansea.
