HC Deb 26 January 1993 vol 217 cc685-6W
17. Mr. Bowis

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many health districts in London provide beds in the community or attached to hospitals for post-operative convalescence.

Dr. Mawhinney

This information is not collected centrally. It is up to each health authority to commission appropriate health care for its patients. If necessary that could include post-operative convalescent care.
