HC Deb 16 November 1982 vol 32 cc92-3W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will publish a table showing for each of the last three years how many people from the counties of Gwynedd and Clwyd needed to attend an artificial limb centre; and, of these, how many were provided with the service within Wales and how many had to go outside Wales for the service.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

Precise information in the form requested could be obtained only at disproportionate cost but, on average, 40 patients from the county of Gwynedd and 90 from the county of Clwyd attend the artificial limb centre at Liverpool each month. About 25 patients in those counties who are not well enough to travel to Liverpool are visited in their homes by medical officers from that centre each year.
