asked the Minister of Health how many female patients have been transferred from St. George's Hospital, Staffordshire, to other hospitals because they require insulin treatment, since 5th July, 1948.
Arrangements for the transfer of women patients from St. George's Hospital to other mental hospitals in the region were only recently made. One such patient will be removed shortly and others will be transferred as soon as vacancies are available.
asked the Minister of Health how many, and what proportion of, beds Coton Hill Hospital, Staffordshire, are reserved for fee-paying patients.
The proposals of the regional hospital board with a view to the use of beds at Coton Hill Hospital for fee-paying patients are at present the subject of discussion between my Department and the board, and I will write to the hon. Member when a decision has been reached.
