§ Mr. Hannam
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement concerning closures of ward and beds at Stoke Mandeville hospital.
§ Dr. Vaughan
The Oxford RHA and the Buckinghamshire AHA have agreed that there will be no further reduction in the number of beds or the level of service at the National Spinal Injuries Centre at Stoke Mandeville hospital. One of the two closed wards will be reopened as soon as possible, and the other ward will be reserved for the use of spinal patients.
