    A study was undertaken into the obstetric services of a health district to find out whether the new purpose-built obstetric accommodation was still needed and, if so, the best method for bringing it into use. If it was not required for its original purpose it was hoped that the study would reveal an alternative use. It was also hoped that the study would answer any further questions that might emerge from the investigation. The study showed that the purpose-built obstetric accommodation was not a present required. It was recommended that the 22 obstetric beds should be used for gynaecology and that the accommondation upgraded earlier for that purpose should form part of the geriatric provision.
