HC Deb 30 July 1976 vol 916 c497W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services on what grounds the temporary closure of Willesden General Hospital has been granted; what will happen to the staff; what is his estimate of the financial consequences of this closure; if he can ensure that the hospital will reopen in its present form; and if he will make a statement.

Dr. Owen

Willesden General Hospital has not been temporarily closed. There are, however, some restrictions in service due to staffing difficulties.
