Accident and Emergency Services

Volume 454: debated on Monday 11 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make a statement on the future of accident and emergency services at (a) Northwick Park hospital and (b) Central Middlesex hospital. (105786)

This is a matter for the local national health service. However, NHS London has advised that in May 2006 the North West London hospitals NHS trust board, of which Northwick Park hospital and Central Middlesex hospital are both part, discussed options for reconfiguring services between the two hospital sites while reviewing the strategic outline case for redevelopment of Northwick Park hospital.

We understand that no decision was taken then and the trust and host PCTs, Harrow and Brent, have since launched a three-month discussion programme with local people and other stakeholders about how local health services should be delivered in future.
