§ 24. Mr. Fabricant
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on the future of cottage hospitals in South Staffordshire. 
§ Yvette Cooper
South Staffordshire Health Authority has undertaken a wide ranging strategic review of services. Following this period of informal consultation, specific proposals will be presented for formal public 141W consultation. It would therefore not be possible for me to comment at this time on the future provision of services at specific sites in South Staffordshire.
