Mr. Edwards

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement about the proposed Chepstow community hospital. [2375]

Mr. Win Griffiths

Glan Hafren NHS Trust in collaboration with local GPs, and with the support of Gwent Health Authority, are working on a proposal for a new Neighbourhood Health Unit to be built on the St. Lawrence Hospital site at Chepstow. The unit will provide for a range of primary, continuing, mental health, diagnostic and acute services. The development is a Private Finance Initiative and the Trust are currently in the final stages of negotiation with the private sector consortium.
