HC Deb 12 February 1985 vol 73 c151W
19. Mr. Madden

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a statement on the proposed closure of Thornton View hospital in Bradford.

Mr. John Patten

My right hon. Friend decided in April 1984 that this unsatisfactory building should be closed and its services transferred to other hospitals in Bradford. Bradford health authority has stopped admitting patients and when the weather and other circumstances permit are transferring patients to other hospitals as suitable places can be made available.
