To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what progress has been made in developing the military-managed wing at Selly Oak hospital.
Excellent progress has been made since we announced, over a year ago, that we were establishing a military-managed ward at Selly Oak hospital for military trauma orthopaedic patients whom it is clinically appropriate to accommodate together. The ward achieved the desired operational capability last July. We shall build on these arrangements when we move into the new Birmingham hospital in 2010. I pay tribute to the military medical and NHS civilian ward staff who are providing first-class treatment and care for severely wounded military personnel.
