To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many patients in (a) North West Cambridgeshire constituency, (b) Cambridgeshire Primary Care Trust, (c) Peterborough Primary Care Trust and (d) England were attended to within (i) 10, (ii) 30, (iii) 60 and (iv) 120 minutes of arriving at an accident and emergency unit in the latest period for which figures are available.
Information is not available in the format requested. The Department does not hold data by constituency. However, the following table sets out the number of attendances in 2008-09 in accident and emergency (A&E) departments operated by acute trusts based within the Cambridgeshire Primary Care Trust (PCT) area, the Peterborough PCT area, and England, by the time spent between arrival and departure from A&E. Since the data are collected by acute trust rather than by PCT, the data may include attendances from A&E departments located outside the PCT area. For example, Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust operates a type 3 A&E department (a minor injuries unit) at Stamford and Rutland hospital in Lincolnshire.
|Number of A&E attendances, by time from arrival to departure from the department, 2008-09|
|Duration to departure from A&E||Cambridgeshire PCT||Peterborough PCT||England|
|All attendances (with a known time to departure)||121,982||68,698||13,445,355|
