HC Deb 07 September 2004 vol 424 c1074W
Andy King

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the(a) anticipated construction cost, (b) date for start of construction and (c) date for completion is of each diagnostic and treatment centre already completed or in development in March. [182455]

Mr. Hutton

Capital investment of circa. £140 million has been made in the 27 treatment centres that are open and run and managed by the national health service. In addition, the NHS is contracting with the independent sector for the provision of surgical procedures rather than new physical capacity. In total, we expect there to be around 80 treatment centres open by the end of 2005.
