HC Deb 20 December 1990 vol 183 c348W
Mr. Hannam

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what information he has concerning recent developments in the services for mentally ill in Exeter.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

I visited Exeter on 23 November to open the new Cedars Health unit, a £2 million, 42-bed mental health unit.

This is one of a number of recent developments in services for the mentally ill in Exeter. These include an 18-bed child and adolescent psychiatric unit; 10 units with a total of 150 beds, for confused elderly people; and 11 hostels and sheltered housing developments with a total of 85 places in conjunction with the voluntary sector.
