HC Deb 10 April 2002 vol 383 cc452-3W
Mr. Gibb

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what capital allocations have been and will be made in respect of GP premises in the Western Sussex Primary Care Trust for 2001–02. [45337]

Ms Blears

The Western Sussex Primary Care Trust is an amalgamation of Regis and Chichester and Rural Primary Care Groups (PCGs). These PCGs received a share of the additional moneys for investment in primary care premises that were allocated towards the end of 2001. These were £25,000 for 2001–02 and £50,000 for 2002–03.

In addition, the PCGs have accessed the West Sussex General Medical Services discretionary fund, which included over £500,000 for cost rent and improvement grant projects. The Western Sussex share of that was £140,000 or 28 per cent of the funding. With the agreement of all PCGs and Primary Care Trusts in West Sussex, this money has been held and managed as a shared resource for 2001–02.
