§ Mr. Edwin Wainwright
asked the Minister of Health how many trained technicians in cytology are employed in the Sheffield Regional Hospital Board area; and how many he estimates would be required in order that all women of 35 years and over could be screened at least once every five years.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
At 31st December, 1967, 73, equivalent to 39½ whole-time. The hospital authorities estimate that 49½ whole-time equivalent technicians would be required if all women of 35 years and over were to be screened at least once every five years.
