Mental Health Services: Warley

Volume 468: debated on Wednesday 28 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans he has to relocate the mental health unit at Mascalls Park, Warley to Romford. (167440)

Any proposals for the reconfiguration of services are a matter for the national health service locally. As such, North East London Mental Health Trust (NELMHT) has recently conducted a full public consultation on the future of mental health services across the four boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Redbridge, and Waltham Forest.

The consultation began on 27 July and ended 19 October 2007, and we are informed that one of the key points for consultation was the future of in-patient mental health services for patients from Barking and Dagenham, and Havering, which are currently located at Mascalls Park hospital, Brentwood. The trust board will discuss the outcome of the consultation at its meeting on 27 November 2007.
