§ Mr. Pavitt
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish a list in the Official Report showing the number of pay beds in each of the hospitals within the Brent and Harrow area, the specialities for which they were assigned and the percentage of occupancy by private patients in the last year.
§ Dr. Owen
The information is as follows:
Hospital Number of authorised pay beds Percentage occupancy of pay beds by paying patients during 1975 Central Middlesex 9 53.3 Wembley 4 42.5 Willesden 3 23.3 Northwick Park 12 70.8 Harrow 3 30.0
