HC Deb 29 October 1985 vol 84 c444W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what he estimates to be (i) the current cost of keeping a patient in Fairfield hospital and (ii) the cost of caring for such patients when they are transferred to smaller units of accommodation.

Mr. Whitney

The average daily cost in the year ending 31 March 1985 of treating inpatients in Fairfield hospital was £30.27. No estimates are available centrally of what would be the cost of caring for Fairfield patients in smaller units of accommodation. This will vary according to local circumstances and the type of patient.
