To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether he has approved the implementation of Project 2000 nurses training in any additional schools of nursing.

I am pleased to announce that approval has been given today to implementation of Project 2000 in 14 more schools of nursing during 1990–91, subject to the necessary educational approval being obtained from the English national board. They cover the following 30 health districts:

  • Lancaster; East, South and West Cumbria
  • Harrogate and Northallerton
  • North and South Lincolnshire, Nottingham, and Central Nottinghamshire
  • West Suffolk
  • Hillingdon
  • Barking, Havering and Brentwood
  • Canterbury and Thanet, South-East Kent
  • Croydon, Merton and Sutton
  • Southampton and South-West Hampshire
  • East and West Berkshire
  • Cornwall and Plymouth
  • Herefordshire, Kidderminster, Worcester, and Bromsgrove and Redditch
  • South Sefton, Southport and Formby
  • Salford, Bolton
In addition, I am able at this stage to give approval in advance to implementation in 1991–92 for three further schools, covering a further five health districts:

  • Shropshire, Staffordshire
  • City and Hackney
  • Stockport and Glossop

The total funding to be made available by the Department for the implementation of Project 2000 in 1989–90 and 1990–91 will be approximately £38 million.
