Accident and Emergency Departments: West Sussex Primary Care Trust

Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 17 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment his Department has made of the likely impact on travel times to emergency facilities in West Sussex Primary Care Trust in the event of the relocation of accident and emergency facilities away from Worthing Hospital. (157019)

It is for primary care trusts (PCTs) in conjunction with other local stakeholders and their strategic health authorities (SHAs) to make assessments of current and future health needs and to commission services accordingly. South East Coast SHA has advised officials that in this case West Sussex PCT has carried out the assessment.

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