§ Dr. Owen
The regional Health authority has been given an indication of 241W the capital resources that will be available to it for the years to 1978–79. So far it has selected priorities for starts only in the current financial year, and its programme includes a start on a 120-bedded unit on the St. John's Hospital site in Peterborough where work is expected to start in August 1976.
The priority for further development of hospital services in Peterborough will be considered at a later stage. The area and regional health authorities are actively considering the needs of the Peterborough Health District with a view to establishing what further facilities are required. No design work is yet in hand, but a prospective site has been selected for a second district general hospital.
