HC Deb 02 November 1998 vol 318 c323W
Mr. Sarwar

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what plans he has to secure provision of additional breast cancer radiologists in Scotland. [56713]

Mr. Galbraith

Cancer is a priority area for the NHS in Scotland. Diagnostic Radiology is recognised to be a shortage speciality due to expansion in service provision and hence consultant numbers. This issue is being addressed through an increase in training numbers.
