HC Deb 24 May 1990 vol 173 c331W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what representations he has received about the closure of St. Ann's adolescent psychiatric unit in Nottingham; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Dorrell

We have received two representations about St. Ann's, including one from the hon. Member. I understand that Nottingham health authority plans to strengthen its adolescent psychiatric service by appointing a professor with a supporting senior lecturer and fifth mental health team. In the meantime, the health authority hopes to cover the consultant vacancy with a locum.
