Mr. Dobson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether any health authority has applied for any district or part thereof to be designated as one in which all proposed private hospital developments require authorisation under the Health Services Act 1976 as amended by the Health Services Act 1980.

30 Mr. Kenneth Clarke


Mr. Dobson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish in the Official Report a list of the district health authority areas where privately owned hospitals or clinics were opened or extended in 1982; and if he will state the number of new private beds in each district.

The following table is based on a follow-up to notifications made to the Department under the Health Services Act 1976, as amended by the Health Services Act 1980, and may not be comprehensive.
