To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what estimate he has made of the annual capacity of the new accident and emergency department after the merger of the Royal Bournemouth and Poole hospitals; and how that will compare to the current joint capacity of the two departments at those hospitals.

Under plans by both the boards of The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, the annual capacity of the two hospitals will go up by 14,000.

It will be for NHS Improvement as the independent regulator to be assured that the integration of services within the planned merger of the two NHS Foundation Trusts ensures the delivery of high-quality National Health Service services.
