§ Mr. Arnold Shaw
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what progress has been made towards the development of King George Hospital as the district general hospital in the Ilford area; and if she will make a statement.
§ Dr. Owen
Improvements to King George Hospital, Ilford, have included a new accident and emergency department which opened late in 1974; upgrading of operating theatres will start this year. Further consideration of the long-term plan for a district general hospital will have to be undertaken in the light of the resources available.
