HC Deb 19 January 1993 vol 217 c188W
Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what is his estimate of the number of people suffering from cancer receiving care in their homes; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gwilym Jones

This information is not available centrally.

One of the major strategic aims of the NHS in Wales is to bring health care closer to a patient's home. Our emphasis is on health gain and we wish to see an increase in the quality of life for people with cancer. I am pleased that health authorities are addressing these issues.
