'Named day' questions only occur in the House of Commons. The MP tabling the question specifies the date on which they should receive an answer. MPs may not table more than five named day questions on a single day.
Accident and emergency (A&E) department types are defined according to the activity performed. The definitions are as follows:
Emergency departments – consultant-led 24-hour services with full resuscitation facilities and designated accommodation for the reception of accident and emergency patients.
Consultant-led mono specialty accident and emergency services (e.g. ophthalmology or dental) with designated accommodation for the reception of patients.
Other type of A&E/minor injury activity with designated accommodation for the reception of accident and emergency patients. The department may be doctor-led or nurse-led, treats at least minor injuries and illnesses and can be routinely accessed without an appointment. A service mainly or entirely appointment-based (for example a general practitioner practice or outpatient clinic) is excluded even though it may treat a number of patients with minor illness or injury. This category excludes National Health Service walk-in centres.
NHS walk-in centres.
