HC Deb 18 December 1997 vol 303 cc323-4W
Mr. Bob Russell

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much of the North Essex Health Authority finance allocated to GP fundholders was spent in other health authority areas; and how much of that was spent in the private sector and on which specialties in the last year for which figures are available. [18611]

Mr. Milburn

Information is not held centrally on how much of their budget general practitioner fundholders in North Essex Health Authority spent in other health authority areas.

Neither do health authority accounts identify GP fundholder expenditure in private providers of healthcare, except in aggregate with that in voluntary providers such as hospices and in general practices approved to provide secondary care.
