Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]
Maria Miller (Shadow Minister (Family), Children, Schools and Families; Basingstoke, Conservative)
The out-of-hours service in my constituency is delivered in a central location in my local hospital-it is delivered right next to the accident and emergency department. That means that people who could be better served by out-of-hours services can be redirected, thus providing them with better care and, importantly, saving the hospital money. Does my hon. Friend think that that is the sort of model that other areas should be adopting?
