§ Mr. Mudie
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what is her estimate of(a) the cost of transferring the cardiothoracic facilities from Killingbeck to the Leeds general infirmary and (b) the cost of improving the Killingbeck facilities in the event of the transfer to the Leeds general infirmary not going ahead.
§ Mr. Sackville
I am advised that the net cost of transferring cardiothoracic facilities from Killingbeck to the Leeds general infirmary as part of an integrated redevelopment of Leeds general infirmary is estimated to be £2.1 million, taking into account site proceeds. The cost of upgrading Killingbeck to provide similar levels of performance is estimated to be 15.4 million.
