§ Mr. William Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many gynaecologists were serving in the National Health Service in 1965, 1970 and 1975; and what is the figure currently.
§ Mr. Fairgrieve
It is not possible to differentiate between gynaecologists and 519W obstetricians, since the medical staffing statistics show them in a single speciality. The number of hospital doctors in the speciality in Scotland for the following years are:
1965 314 1970 340 1975 377 1978 392
