HC Deb 11 June 2002 vol 386 cc1208-9W
Dr. Evan Harris

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what percentage of primary care premises are over 30 years old. [53366]

Mr. Lammy

The data held centrally are those from surveys of health centres and general practitioner (GP) premises carried out by district valuers in 1999. These data indicate that some 52 per cent. of premises were originally constructed over 30 years ago.

This proportion will be reduce as new premises are constructed under the NHS Plan.
