HC Deb 26 October 1976 vol 918 c128W
67. Mr. Carlisle

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will call for a report from the regional health authority as to the adequacy of medical provision in the Runcorn New Town and Old Town area.

Mr. Moyle

No. I am satisfied that there is no need for any such report. Mersey Regional Health Authority has this month selected phase II of Halton General Hospital as its first priority for major capital development in the region. The RHA has also approved the provision of a new health centre at Hall-wood which will improve the facilities already provided by the Cheshire Area Health Authority for primary health care in the Halton Health District.
