HC Deb 08 November 2001 vol 374 c359W
Mr. Dawson

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will provide funding for an additional CT scanner at Blackpool Victoria Hospital. [12921]

Jacqui Smith

[holding answer 6 November 2001]: In the coming months, the Department will be drawing up and discussing the criteria for allocating a further 50 computer tomography scanners' nationally, funded through the NHS Cancer Plan for 2003–04. It is hoped that a list of sites will be agreed early in the next financial year. Blackpool Victoria Hospital can apply to be considered for an additional scanner under this initiative.
