A and E: Greater London

Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 10 January 2007

23. To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate she has made of the number of accident and emergency departments being re-graded in Greater London. (113247)

Any changes to the provision of emergency care facilities, including accident and emergency departments, are matters for the NHS locally. However, I understand there are likely to be changes to some A and E departments in London as part of reconfiguration proposals to be brought forward, but at present there is no specific number. Any changes to A and E departments will only be made following full consultation with local stakeholders.
