HC Deb 22 July 1980 vol 989 c610W
21. Mr. Thomas Cox

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the present position regarding the closure of St. Benedict's hospital, Tooting.

Dr. Vaughan

The Merton, Sutton and Wandsworth area health authority (teaching) plans to complete the temporary transfer of services from this hospital to the Bolingbroke hospital by the end of September 1980. I am considering the proposal by the health authorities that St. Benedict's should then be permanently closed.
