Do you have plans to expand the hospital air pollution monitoring scheme to other hospitals, particularly St George’s Hospital in my constituency, which is near Tooting Broadway, one of London’s most polluted roads?

Currently three of the ten hospital monitoring pods have been installed, and will collect data for twelve months. Once all the hospital monitors installed as part of the Breathe London programme have been in place for a sufficient duration there will be an evaluation of the hospital monitoring programme. A decision on whether to extend the programme to include additional hospitals will be made at this point.
