HC Deb 03 May 1983 vol 42 c50W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what new provision is being made for neonatal intensive care in the Newcastle area.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

The provision of such facilities is the responsibility of the Northern regional health authority. I understand that the region has decided to allocate additional resources for neonatal services and, together with Newcastle district health authority, is currently examining a possible extension of the facilities available at Newcastle general hospital.
