HC Deb 15 July 1981 vol 8 c400W
Mr. Stan Thorne

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether the psychiatric unit at Sharoe Green hospital, Preston, an annexe of Whittingham hospital, has been authorised to operate a form of black list in respect of former patients; and whether he will make a statement.

Dr. Vaughan

No hospital is authorised to operate a black list of patients and I am assured that no such list exists at Sharoe Green hospital. If the hon. Member has a particular case in mind perhaps he will write to the chairman of the area health authority with details.
