Question for Department of Health

UIN 5257, tabled on 17 July 2017

To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what the length of time taken was between NHS England receiving the response from Royal Brompton and Harefield Foundation Trust to the Impact Assessment on the congenital heart disease consultation on 7 February 2017 and the printing of the consultation documents.

Answered on

20 July 2017

This is a matter for NHS England.

We understand that the Royal Brompton and Harefield Foundation Trust’s initial response to the impact assessment was received by NHS England on 7 November 2016, and a response to a fact check exercise was then received by NHS England on 7 February 2017.

NHS England then launched a public consultation on the implementation of proposed changes to Congenital Heart Disease services on 9 February 2017, which included publication of associated documentation.
