Mr. Dykes

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on future accident and emergency arrangements at Edgware general hospital, following the meeting he held on Wednesday 13 December with the official deputation from the area. [6879]

Mr. Malone

There will continue to he an accident service at Edgware hospital which will have close links with the new accident and emergency centre at Barnet general hospital. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has also asked Barnet health authority to examine with general practitioners their possible role in the new arrangements at Edgware.
