To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what plans the NHS has for the future of Royston Hospital; and if he will make a statement.
NHS Property Services, who own the Royston Hospital site, are working with the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and local Sustainability and Transformation Plan Estates Group colleagues with a review of options for Royston Hospital, including the potential to create a neighbourhood health and wellbeing centre. The review also includes the nearby Royston Health Centre. As part of this review, NHS Property Services and the CCG continue to work with local partners providing health services to determine the right level of services and the appropriate use of the existing estate options to support the needs of the people of Royston. No decisions have yet been made.
The work with partners includes Addenbrookes Hospital who are looking to provide additional services from Royston Hospital.
