HC Deb 06 March 1981 vol 1000 cc207-8W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement on the future of the Royal Liverpool children's hospital.

Dr. Vaughan

I have already announced my decision that the Heswell branch of the Royal Liverpool children's hospital will remain open. I shall be meeting the chairman of the Mersey regional and the Liverpool area health authorities very shortly to discuss the future of paediatric services for the city, including the future of the Myrtle Street hospital.
