§ Baroness Noakes
asked Her Majesty's Government:
How many adult wards in the Kent and Sussex National Health Service Trust are operated on a mixed-sex basis; and what proportion of all adult wards in that trust, other than maternity wards, that represents; and [HL1606]
How many patients were in mixed-sex adult wards in the Kent and Sussex National Health Service Trust on 1 March 2004; and how many patients on each such ward were (a) male; and (b) female. [HL1607]161WA
§ Lord Warner
We are unable to ascertain the trust which the noble Baroness is referring. There is not a trust called Kent and Sussex National Health Service Trust. The information requested is also not available in the form requested, as ward-level data are not collected centrally. However, compliance with the Department of Health's objectives to eliminate mixed-sex accommodation is measured at trust level.
