NHS 247,366 This logo was created before 1997. Since then the Department has spent £247,366 on developing the NHS Identity Guidelines to support the implementation of this logo across the NHS (when items are being replaced). This implementation creates savings for the NHS by taking away the need for all NHS organisations to have different logos and enabling bulk purchasing due to one standard style.

Trusts for utilisation on buildings and equipment. As part of the central allocations, money was included for Primary Care Reform, Health Action Zones, Winter Planning and NHS Modernisation. These are shown separately in the second table.

Mr. Hutton

[holding answer 9 February 2001]: We have no such plans. The Registered Homes Act 1984 will be repealed in its entirety when the regulatory provisions in the Care Standards Act come into effect. There is nothing in either the registered Homes Act of the Care Standards Act which would prevent children suffering from this particular condition from entering care homes.
