HC Deb 07 March 1988 vol 129 c47W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list representations received on the partial opening of the renal extension at Leicester general hospital.

Mrs. Currie

I have received no representations other than those from the hon. Member. The new kidney unit at Leicester general hospital is expected to open later this year. The opening was always intended to be staged. Twenty-four of the 30 available beds should open initially as soon as the district is able to recruit the necessary staff; the others will follow according to workload demand. Trent RHA, of which Leicester is a part, already provides a higher level of renal service than the national guidelines recommend. No separate representation has been received.
