HC Deb 13 November 1979 vol 973 cc518-9W
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 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
