I accept that there will continue to be an accident and emergency unit at Maidstone, but the consultants' point is that it will be greatly reduced. All the orthopaedic trauma will go to Tunbridge Wells and the consultants point out that that cannot be done in isolation. Others will follow, and in the end, the unit will be so small that it will not deserve to be considered in the same way as a big general acute unit.
