HC Deb 31 March 1994 vol 240 cc1045-6W
Ms Primarolo

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much additional money has been allocated to keep University College hospital open; to whom the money will be made available; and if the expenditure will continue in future years.

Dr. Mawhinney

In 1993–94 University College London Hospitals—UCLH—of which University College hospital is a part, were allocated transitional funding totalling some £10.6 million as part of a management plan for matching their capacity to current and foreseeable demand for services. This funding was made available to UCLH via its host commissioner, Camden and Islington district health authority. The amount of transition funding allocated to UCLH in 1994–95 is yet to be agreed.
