To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 8 July 2019 to Question 270772 on Addiction Services, what assessment he has made of the adequacy of the number of medically-staffed inpatient detoxification beds in England; and if he will make a statement.
Answer (Seema Kennedy)
No national assessment has been made of the adequacy of the number of medically-staffed inpatient detoxification beds in England. Local authorities are responsible for assessing local substance misuse need, and commissioning services to meet that need, including inpatient medically-staffed detoxification beds in England.
