To ask the Secretary of State for Health what reorganisations of her Department's press office have taken place since May 2005. (124952)

One reorganisation of the Department's press office has taken place since May 2005.

This involved reorganising the teams of press officers to establish a desk dedicated solely to answering incoming calls and queries from the media, separate from specialist desks providing proactive media relations handling for Ministers.

The rationale behind this reorganisation was to provide a faster and more efficient service for the media and Ministers.
