Dept of HealthYesterday, I had the opportunity in the House to ask Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt, a parliamentary question.

Mr Steve Baker (Wycombe) (Con): What progress has been made towards the implementation of the Keogh review of urgent and emergency care?

Mr Hunt: We are making good progress and we expect to make a substantive announcement on that before the end of the year. That will be about both improving the standard and quality of care in A and E departments, which I know my hon. Friend has a great interest in, and removing the confusion that people feel about what precisely the NHS offer is in their area. It is looking good and I hope to have something to announce to the House before too long.”

I eagerly await an announcement on this issue in the coming months.
