Question

I appreciate that you are not accountable for the delivery of NHS services in the capital or for reconfiguration decisions, however Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt announced recently that Central Middlesex hospitals, A&E units that treat life-threatening injuries and illnesses would be replaced by urgent care services for less serious cases from next year, as part of a shakeup of services for about two million people across North-West London. What representation have you made with regards to how the make-up of the new hospital would look like?

Answer for Central Middlesex Hospitals, A&E units

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I met a cross-party delegation, led by Dr Onkar Sahota AM, to discuss the proposed changes to hospitals in North West London, and subsequently wrote to Dr Anne Rainsberry, Regional Director of London for NHS England.

I have made clear to Dr Rainsberry my expectation that any changes to hospital services are clinically led, take account of (and where possible reduce) health inequalities and provide the high quality service that Londoners deserve.
