HC Deb 26 April 2002 vol 384 c482W
Mr. Jenkin

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many service personnel have been referred to BUPA consultants over the past two years; whether the number has increased over that time; and what the costs to the MoD were of those referrals. [46871]

Dr. Moonie

[holding answer 10 April 2002]: Referrals have been made to BUPA under centrally led initiatives by the Royal Navy, the Army Training and Recruiting Agency and the Defence Secondary Care Agency, and locally by RAF Units. Under these arrangements, some 3,000 referrals have been made to BUPA since April 2000 at cost to date of some £2.7 million. The number of referrals is evenly spread across the two financial years.
