Accident and Emergency Departments: Greater London

Volume 497: debated on Wednesday 14 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many accident and emergency departments in Greater London were not open 24 hours a day on the latest date for which information is available. (291724)

By definition a Type 1 accident and emergency (A&E) department must be open 24 hours a day. All other types of A&E departments need not be open for that period. The opening times of departments are not collected centrally.
