HC Deb 14 February 2003 vol 400 cc26-7W
Matthew Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will place in the Library the evaluations for the Capital Modernisation Fund projects relating to(a) modernising coronary heart disease, (b) A&E and primary modernisation, (c) action on cataracts, (d) meningitis vaccinations, (e) decontamination and (f) NHS LIFT PPPs; and if he will make a statement. [97023]

Jacqui Smith

Of the six Department of Health Treasury Capital Modernisation Fund (TCMF) projects that you have identified, only five are capital investment projects.

The meningitis vaccination programme, whilst financed by TCMF cash, consisted exclusively of vaccinations and we have no plans to evaluate it.

The Action on Cataracts project is complete and the "good practice" it generated and a full evaluation report is expected to be published on the "Action On" website at www.modern.nhs.uk/action-on later this year. Once it is available, a copy will also be placed in the Library.

The remaining projects are currently incomplete. Once they are complete, they will be subjected to thorough post project evaluation, to ensure that any lessons learned are applied to other projects.
