To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many step down beds are under contract to Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust; what the location of each such bed is; and what the average cost of each such bed was in each of the last three years.
This information is not collected centrally.
We have written to Stuart Heys, Chair of the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust informing him of the hon. Member’s enquiry. He will reply shortly and a copy of the letter will be placed in the Library.
