HC Deb 04 March 1997 vol 291 c569W
Mr. Barron

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will list the NHS trusts which will receive funds from the public capital budget to support their proposed private finance initiative projects, indicating for each the amount that will be paid in each year of these arrangements. [18482]

Mr. Horam

The following 14 trusts have been offered funds from the support scheme:

  • Bishop Auckland Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Bromley Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Calderdale Healthcare NHS Trust
  • Carlisle Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust
  • Greenwich Healthcare NHS Trust
  • Hereford Hospitals NHS Trust
  • North Durham Acute Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Oxleas NHS Trust
  • St. James and Seacroft University Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Swindon and Marlborough NHS Trust
  • Walsgrave Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Wellhouse NHS Trust
  • Worcester Royal Infirmary NHS Trust

The trusts are still negotiating with their private sector partners to finalise these projects. Therefore the amount of support being offered to each trust is commercial in confidence. However, the total cost of the support scheme is not expected to exceed £9 million a year, less than 1 per cent. of the total NHS capital budget.
