HC Deb 03 June 1991 vol 192 cc103-4W
Mr. Ingram

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give the number of days, or part of days, in each of the last four quarters when there were no acute medical beds available for admissions to Hairmyres hospital.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

[holding answer 13 May 1991]: The information requested is set out in the table.

Number of occasions per quarter
Total 116

These figures take no account of the fact that two beds are kept available to provide for emergency admissions during the night.

When no medical beds were immediately available at Hairmyres, GPs would contact one of the other acute hospitals in the area.
