I should like to congratulate my right hon. Friend on selecting the Wrightington hospital to become an NHS trust. No doubt my right hon. Friend will be aware that one of the first actions to be taken will be the appointment of a new upper-limb orthopaedic surgeon and medical team. They will assist in reducing our waiting lists in the north-west, although my right hon. Friend will be aware that they have already been greatly reduced. The waiting list now stands at 10 weeks operating time only for the entire region.
