HC Deb 12 February 1993 vol 218 c860W
Mrs. Fyfe

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will introduce a guarantee for patients who wish to receive in-patient treatment at the same hospital they attended as out-patients.

Mr. Stewart

[holding answer 10 February 1993]: No. The decision as to how treatment should be carried out is a matter for discussion between the patient and his or her general practitioner and then the patient and consultant to whom he or she is referred. This may lead to a decision that the in-patient treatment may be most appropriately provided at another hospital.
