asked the Secretary of State for Wales (1) how many community hospitals are under construction at the present time in Wales;(2) how many community hospitals are planned to be built in Wales
(a) in the next five years and (b) in the next 10 years.
New community hospitals have been opened in Mold in 1984 and Ystradgynlais in 1986. None is currently under construction. I understand that currently district health authorities have plans for seven community hospitals in the next five years and a further four in the five years after that.
