HC Deb 25 March 2003 vol 402 c211W
Mr. Paul Marsden

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what contingency plans the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital is making for(a) cover for health professionals called up to serve in the Territorial Army and (b) the possibility of terrorist attacks. [104618]

Mr. Lammy

All national health service bodies are required to develop contingency plans to enable them to cope with the current international situation. The Department of Health is working with the Ministry of Defence to minimise disruption to NHS services. In common with all NHS organisations, the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital NHS Trust has robust plans for dealing with the aftermath of any possible terrorist attack.
