HC Deb 08 March 1968 vol 760 c184W
Dr. Bennett

asked the Minister of Health on what grounds he intends to close Belmont Hospital with its 313 beds and ancillary departments; what is the 50- or 60-bed unit by which he proposes to replace it; and what is the intended timing of these operations.

Mr. K. Robinson

I am informed that the South-West Metropolitan Regional Hospital Board are considering the future of Belmont Hospital in a general review of the development of neurosis services in the Region but they have not yet reached a decision whether or not to recommend its closure.
