HC Deb 29 June 1976 vol 914 cc114-5W
22. Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will take action to replace the existing structures of the Crumpsall, Delarneys and Springfield hospital complex with a modern purpose-built structure in conjunction with the Medical Research Council.

Dr. Owen

The replacement of hospital facilities in the Crumpsall, Delarneys and Springfield complex is a matter to be considered by the North-West Regional Health Authority and the Manchester Area Health Authority in working out their strategic plans for the development of health services which they have been asked to complete by January 1977. I am not aware of any proposal to involve the Medical Research Council.
