§ Dr. David Owen
asked the Minister of Health which National Health Service hospitals provide facilities for outpatient private consultations; which hospitals that are being planned or being built will provide such facilities; and what is the extent of the provision for these facilities.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
I regret that the information asked for in the first part of the Question is not available centrally. Where private out-patients are treated in National Health Service hospitals they generally make use of the normal outpatient accommodation at times when it is not being used for non-paying patients, and there are no plans to provide facilities exclusively for their use.
