19. Mr. Brazier

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on the future of the Kent and Canterbury Hospital. [103211]

A decision on the reconfiguration of acute services in east Kent could not be made while the judicial review of the consultation process was under consideration. This has now been completed and Ministers are considering the recommendation made by Kent and Medway Strategic Health Authority.
