HC Deb 11 December 1984 vol 69 c476W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list in the Official Report the names and locations of each neonatal intensive care unit in England and Wales.

Mr. John Patten

Regional health authorities designate certain special care baby units to provide neonatal intensive care, but such care is also provided by some other such units. Because there is at present no firm definition of intensive care, it is not possible, on a routine basis, to identify and collect centrally details of all the units that give such care.
