§ Sir Norman Fowler
To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many operations were provided in the last 12 months at the Good Hope hospital, Sutton Coldfield; and what was the comparable figure for 1978.
§ Mr. Sackville
This information is not available centrally, although I understand from the Good Hope hospital that the total number of operations undertaken at the hospital in the current year is expected to show a 47 per cent. increase on 1989–90. I refer my right hon. Friend to Mr. Doug Ellis, chairman of the Good Hope hospital, for further details.
