Mr. Burns

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many intensive care baby incubators are available for use in London NHS hospitals. [46687]

Mr. Hutton

Data on the availability of intensive care incubators are not collected centrally.

The Department does however have data on the number of neonatal intensive care cots available. There are 146 intensive care cots available at London NHS hospitals.

The Department also has data on the number of cots designated for providing lesser dependency care.

There are 82 High Dependency Cots, 333 Special Care Baby cots and 38 Transitional Care Cots.
