HC Deb 09 June 1986 vol 99 c96W
Mr. Jessel

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list the dates for the stages in the procedure for the forthcoming appointment of a permanent consultant in the casualty department of the West Middlesex hospital; if he will ask the North West Thames regional health authority to hasten the appointment and if he will review the possibility of an appointment of a senior registrar; if he will make a statement on the establishment, the actual staffing recently and expected in the near future; and what action is being taken to provide emergency services.

Mr. Hayhoe

Strenuous efforts are being made to fill the vacancies in this accident and emergency department and I understand that the chairman of the Hounslow and Spelthorne health authority is keeping my hon. Friend informed about the detailed action being taken.
