A question by Henry Smith MP in the House of Commons has revealed that the number of doctors at Crawley Hospital has increased by 97 since 2010.
The number of nurses increased by 107.
He asked Health SecretaryJeremy Hunt MP:“In 2005 under the previous Labour Government, Crawley Hospital’s A and E department was closed, but I am pleased to say that in recent years health and other emergency services have been returning to the facility. Will my Rt Hon Friend consider centring more emergency centres in Crawley, as the natural sub-regional population centre?”
Jeremy Hunt MP responded: “I congratulate my Hon Friend on his campaigning for Crawley Hospital and pay tribute to staff at the hospital.”
He added“He will welcome the fact that since 2010 the number of doctors at the hospital has increased by 97 and the number of nurses by 107. Of course, we will always consider ways to improve services for his constituents.”
