§ Sandra Gidley
To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) how many wards in NHS hospitals have regularly had patients of both sexes staying at the same time in the last 12 months; 
(2) on how many occasions over the last 12 months hospitals have admitted a patient into a ward reserved for patients of the opposite sex, broken down by NHS hospital trust. 
§ Mr. Hutton
The Department does not collect information at the level of the individual ward. National health service trusts are required only to report on total patient throughput per annum.
