HC Deb 05 December 1979 vol 975 c271W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he has any plans to close any radiotherapy departments; and, if so, which.

Dr. Vaughan

It is for health authorities to plan the provision of radiotherapy services taking account of guidance issued by the Department. The only recent decision to close a radiotherapy unit of which I am aware concerns the peripheral one in Burnley.
