HC Deb 21 February 1978 vol 944 c588W
45. Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations he has received about the proposed future use of Rush Green Hospital and the transfer of all acute services, including maternity and infectious diseases, to Oldchurch Hospital; and whether he will oppose its use mainly as a unit for the terminal ill.

Mr. Moyle

I have received a joint letter from my hon. Friend and from my hon. Friends the Members for Barking (Miss Richardson) and Hornchurch (Mr. Williams) ad from the hon. Member for Romford (Mr. Neubert). No proposal for change of use of Rush Green Hospital has been submitted to me by the responsible health authorities and it would be inappropriate for me to intervene at this stage in their discussions on this matter. I will write to my hon. Friends and the hon. Member.
