HC Deb 09 March 1993 vol 220 c490W
Mrs. Dunwoody

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make it her policy to extend day and residential rehabilitation facilities staffed by skilled personnel including physiotherapists and occupational therapists for the care of elderly patients discharged into the community.

Mr. Yeo

A wide range of rehabilitation facilities exists within the national health service and local social services authorities. Decisions about rehabilitation services are for the professional judgment of those concerned with the individual case.
