Health Services: Stroud

Volume 487: debated on Monday 26 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what progress is being made in the provision of a new health facility in the Cam and Dunley area in Stroud constituency; and whether he plans to re-use the Berkeley Hospital site. (247935)

The provision of services is a matter for the national health service locally to resolve by working in partnership with the communities that they serve.

We have been advised by the South West strategic health authority that the Gloucestershire primary care trust is continuing to work with the local community to develop new ways of delivering health and social care services to provide care closer to home. This includes looking at health needs, patient and carer benefits and service developments that are effective and make maximum use of new technology and staff skills.
