Health Services: West Sussex

Volume 481: debated on Tuesday 21 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answers of 29 January 2008, Official Report, column 339W and 21 April 2008, Official Report, column 1795W, on health services: West Sussex, what assessment he has made of whether the South East Coast Strategic Health Authority and the West Sussex Primary Care Trust are allowing the panel reviewing services in the north east of West Sussex to consider all viable options. (228119)

The Department has made no assessment of West Sussex Primary Care Trust's review of services in the north east of West Sussex. As stated in the answers I gave the hon. Member on 29 January and 21 April 2008, proposals for changes to services are a local matter. Therefore, I recommend that the right hon. Member continue to engage with the national health service locally on this issue.
