The Department of Health occupies buildings on the common user estate provided and administered by the Department of the Environment. Identifiable totals of the Department of Health's expenditure are available only from 1 April 1989 following this Department's separation from the Department of Social Security. In the financial year 1989–90 the Department of Health spent £2.292 million on new works not exceeding £150,000 each.
Details of the combined Department of Health and Department of Social Security major building projects are published each year with the supply estimates and details are in the Library.
