HC Deb 23 July 2002 vol 389 c1087W
David Wright

To ask the Secretary of State for Health which NHS hospital trusts have been merged in the last five years. [67185]

Mr. Hutton

A list of national health service trusts which have been involved in major reconfigurations over the last five years has been placed in the Library. Most of these have merged by dissolution and establishment of new trusts, but there are also absorption mergers and parts of NHS trusts involved in the formation of new NHS trusts and primary care trusts.
