The Department's records show that we have received only one representation specifically on the number of beds in maternity facilities at Hemel Hempstead hospital, which was a parliamentary question from the hon. Member for Hemel Hempstead in June 2008. However, from June 2005 to June 2008, we have received the following representations on the future of services at West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust, including maternity services:
three parliamentary questions; one business question; two ministerial meetings with hon. Members; and one debate.
The Department has also received around 1,900 items of correspondence on the future of services at Hemel Hempstead hospital since June 2005. However, due to the way in which correspondence is logged, items concerned specifically with the number of beds in maternity facilities at the hospital could be identified only at disproportionate cost.
