§ 67. Mr. Boyden
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will tabulate the shortages of staff in the ancillary hospital services both for the country as a whole and for the area of the Newcastle Hospital Board.
§ Mr. Alison
Levels of ancillary staffing have not been laid down centrally. The filling of vacancies is a matter for employing authorities, and no records of such vacancies are maintained either nationally or by the Newcastle Regional Hospital Board.
