HC Deb 26 January 1999 vol 324 c207W
Mr. Hancock

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what investment his Department has made in facilities at the Royal Naval Hospital, Haslar in each of the last five years. [65782]

Mr. Denham

The Department has made no investment in the facilities at the Royal Hospital Haslar in any of the last 5 years.

The Portsmouth Hospital National Health Service Trust and Royal Hospital Haslar work closely together and staff from both organisations work across both hospital sites. Doctors provide cover in certain specialties and staff are exchanged, in particular in cardiology and urology. No revenue transfer is involved. Haslar charges the NHS trust for the use of its magnetic resonance imaging scanner.
