HC Deb 25 February 1976 vol 906 c260W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many beds are available in the Brent-Harrow area for young chronic sick other than in geriatric wards.

Dr. Owen

None. The North West Thames Regional Health Authority in allocating beds for the care of the younger chronic sick has divided its region into three with three consultant appointments. The Brent and Harrow area is linked with the Barnet and Kensington, Chelsea and Westminster Areas for this purpose. Jointly they use 28 beds at the Marie Foster Home in Barnet. Contractual arrangements have also been made for them to use 15 beds at the Royal Hospital and Home for Incurables, a voluntary hospital in Putney.
