Valerie asks for support for the Manor Hospital.

Today, Tuesday 2 June 2015, at Health Questions I asked the Secretary of State For Health:

Will the Secretary of State ensure that other local hospitals, such as the Manor hospital, which have had to take up the slack following the closure of A&E and maternity services also get some support?

Mr Hunt:
We absolutely will take a whole health economy view of that, and look at all hospitals that are affected by the changes.

I am pleased the Secretary of State acknowledged that hospitals do not operate in isolation but that when services are cut in one area this has an impact on services in nearby hospitals.
