§ 81. Mr. William Wells
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what 10W progress is being made in reducing the delay in treating gynaecological cases at the Manor Hospital, Walsall.
§ Mr. Alison
Both the numbers of inpatients treated in the gynaecology department and the numbers waiting for admission have remained fairly constant over the last 18 months. The board has to consider development of gynaecology services in Walsall with the claims to development of other services in the region. Emergency cases are admitted immediately.
