§ Mr. Watkinson
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) how many health centres there are presently in Gloucestershire;
(2) if he will list in the Official Report the locations of health centres in Gloucestershire;
(3) how many health centres there are in Gloucestershire per head of population; and how this compares with the national average.
§ Dr. Owen
There are seven health centres currently operational in Gloucestershire, located at Cinderford; Newent; Newton Road, Cheltenham; Rikenel, Gloucester; Stroud; Berkeley; Lydbrook.
This provision equates to one health centre per 69,714 population, compared with an average for England of one per 73,271 at December 1975.
