South Petherton Hospital

Volume 450: debated on Thursday 26 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health when South Petherton Hospital will be reopened; and if she will make a statement. (95310)

This is a local matter. Local national health service (NHS) organisations are responsible for decisions about local services in their area. NHS South West has advised officials that the former South Somerset Primary Care Trust (PCT) has developed a business case for the redevelopment of South Petherton Hospital, which would need to be considered by the newly formed Somerset PCT.

The hon. Member may wish to approach the PCT directly for further details on this matter.
