§ Mr. Jessel
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will set out in the Official Report the cost of an average medical bed and, where appropriate, an average surgical bed, per year in (a) the West Middlesex community hospital, (b) the Ashford hospital, (c) Kingston hospital, (d) the Queen Mary's hospital, Roehampton, (e) the Teddington Memorial hospital and (f) St. Mary's hospital, Hampton.
§ Mr. Newton
Information is not collected centrally in this form. The cost returns submitted by health authorities to the Department show average costs per in-patient day for each hospital but do not distinguish between different categories of beds within hospitals.
In 1985–86 the average cost per in-patient day for the hospitals named was:
£ West Middlesex Community Hospital 86.01 Ashford Hospital 77.15 Kingston Hospital 100.31
£ Queen Mary's Hospital, Roehampton 104.47 Teddington Memorial Hospital 47.81 St. Mary's Hospital, Hampton 46.38
§ Mr. Jessel
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services which district health authorities in the South West Thames and in the North West Thames regions pay under contractual arrangements for beds for those patients who do not need either nursing or medical care in private or voluntary residential or nursing homes; approximately how many beds are so provided by each authority; and if, in the case of each authority, he will state the average cost.
