§ Mr. Tom Clarke
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals have been put to him by Greater Glasgow health board, concerning the future of Woodilee hospital; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
The Greater Glasgow health board is currently reviewing its strategy for mental illness services across the whole of its area. The long-term future of Woodilee hospital will be dependent on the outcome of that review. My Department has had discussions with the board about the interim measures it has taken so far at Woodilee following the evacuation of the hospital's main block earlier this year, and is currently considering proposals for further measures.
