Hospitals: Closures

Volume 485: debated on Wednesday 10 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many hospitals have been closed in (a) the East of England, South Central, South East Coast and South West strategic health authorities and (b) the North East, North West and Yorkshire and the Humber strategic health authorities in each year since 2006.

Information on hospital closures is not held centrally. It is for national health service organisations to decide locally what constitutes the best configuration of healthcare services and facilities for their populations, working in conjunction with clinicians, patients and other stakeholders.
