HC Deb 26 March 1996 vol 274 c513W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what are the staffing levels now at the Liverpool blood transfusion centre; what cover will be available if members of staff are off sick or on annual leave; and when the Manchester facility will come into operation. [22220]

Mr. Horam

The staffing of blood centres is a matter for the National Blood Authority.

The Manchester centre will take over the bulk processing and testing work currently performed by the Liverpool centre by December 1997.
