asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects the vacancy for a radiologist at Ormskirk and District General Hospital to be filled; when direct access facilities for general practitioners for X-rays at the hospital will be restored; and if he will give an assurance that the establishment for radiologists at the hospital will not be reduced.

The post was re-advertised on a locum tenens basis on 26th March and will later be advertised as a permanent appointment. Discussions are being held with the District Medical Committee and the Medical Executive Committee with a view to the speedy resumption of open access to general practitioners for radiography. There is no intention of reducing the establishment of radiologists for Ormskirk district.
