To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how much new capital funding has been made available for capital works at Southend Hospital as of 6 September 2022; what his planned timetable is for making potential further new capital funding available for those works; and if he will make a statement.

Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation received £10.2 million in 2020/21 and £5.3 million in 2021/22 for Southend Hospital through the programme to upgrade accident and emergency departments. The Trust was also awarded £118 million in 2017 for a scheme to transform acute and out-of-hospital services locally, including at Southend Hospital, following public consultation. The Trust is currently developing its full business case and a request for early funding is currently under review. Full funding will be made available once the business case has been approved.
