§ Dr. Roger Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Wales, further to the answer of 5 December to the hon. Member for Carmarthen, Official Report, column 803, if he will detail the timetable for the establishment of a cardiac surgery unit at Cardiff.
§ Mr. Mark Robinson
There is already a cardiac surgery unit at Cardiff, which in 1985 performed 605 operations. We intend to expand this unit but the timetable depends on a current strategic review of services, which is nearing completion.
