Dr. Fox

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much money from the National Lottery was spent on the NHS and NHS projects in the last 12 months for which figures are available. [39756]

Mr. Caborn

I have been asked to reply.

Of the lottery distributors, the New Opportunities Fund supports projects in the fields of health, education and the environment.

In the period from 1 March 2001 to 28 February 2002, NOF funded a number of health related projects. Approximately £90 million was spent on 115 healthy living centres; £39.75 million was spent on projects to help in the treatment of coronary heart disease and cancer, including funding for 27 cardiac angiography machines and 16 MRI scanners. Finally, £1.4 million was provided to fund multi-viewers to view breast screening X-rays.
