HC Deb 15 March 1976 vol 907 c438W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether the Cumberland Infirmary, Carlisle, is understaffed; if she will take action to remedy any understaffing; and if she will make a statement.

Dr. Owen

Apart from vacancies for two physiotherapists and two occupational therapists which are so far unfilled due to a lack of suitable candidates, all other categories of staff are up to establishment. Nursing staff are 27 above the establishment at present.
