HC Deb 28 May 1968 vol 765 c192W
45. Mr. Montgomery

asked the Minister of Health if he is satisfied with the number of obstetric beds available for the Wolverhampton area; and what plans there are for increasing the number.

Mr. K. Robinson

No. A new maternity unit of 146 beds to replace the present 59 beds is being built at New Cross Hospital and is due to open next year. New building elsewhere in the area will further relieve the pressure on obstetric beds in Wolverhampton next year.
