Acute Services Trusts

Volume 456: debated on Tuesday 6 February 2007

16. To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make a statement on the future organisation of acute services trusts in (a) Northamptonshire and (b) England. (118600)

I understand that NHS East Midlands is to commission an externally led initial review of the key organisational model options for acute services in Northamptonshire. This is expected to report on a range of options by the end of March.

In parallel to this, I understand that Northamptonshire primary care trust is leading a separate review of acute clinical services provision between Kettering General NHS Trust and Northampton General NHS Trust.

It is for the local NHS to determine the configuration of local services and organisations.
