(209)In the case of Barnet and Chase Farm Hospitals NHS Trust, auditors agreed an amendment to their 2003–04 final accounts, which meant that the trust was not in breach of its breakeven duty.

Northwick Park Hospital

Mr. Hurd: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many consultants are contributing to maternity care in the labour wards at Northwick Park Hospital; and what the consultant to delivery ratio is at (a) Northwick Park Hospital and (b) other NHS hospitals handling over 4,000 deliveries a year, with particular reference to out-of-hours cover. [14869]

Jane Kennedy: Maternity care is provided by consultants who specialise in both obstetrics, which is the branch of medicine dealing with childbirth, and gynaecology, the branch of medicine dealing with women's health. Information on the amount of time a consultant contributes solely to maternity care in the labour wards at Northwick Park Hospital is not recorded centrally.

However, the ratio of deliveries per consultant specialising in obstetrics and gynaecology at Northwick Park Hospital and other national health service hospitals handling over 4,000 deliveries a year is shown in the table.

However, the statistics available are unable to make reference to out of hours cover.
