§ Mr. Gardner
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many patients are now on the waiting list for plastic burn treatment in the Sheffield Regional Hospital Board area; and how many of these are resident in Nottinghamshire.
The number of patients on the waiting list for plastic surgery in the Sheffield Regional Hospital Board area at 31st December, 1968, was 2,531. Of these, 1,233 were waiting for treatment in Nottingham; but information on their places of residence is not readily available. Emergency treatment of burns injuries is of course undertaken without delay.
