HC Deb 13 June 2002 vol 386 c1441W
Mr. Hoban

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many patients were waiting for in-patient treatment for more than 15 months at the Portsmouth Hospital Trust, at the latest date for which figures are available. [61125]

Ms. Blears

The Department's Directorate of Health and Social Care for the south of England makes an analysis of fifteen month waits at the end of each month. The analysis for the end of April 2002, the most recent month for which information is currently available, indicted that no patients were waiting over fifteen months for inpatient treatment at the trust.
