To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he will publish the results of the first national patients' survey; and how much the survey cost. 
Inpatient and general practitioner services were surveyed as part of the 2002 patient survey programme. The results have been disseminated to participating trusts on a strategic health authority-wide basis, to allow for cross-comparison and local benchmarking. This approach enabled strategic health authorities to maintain an overview of how results were formulated into trust-based follow-up plans.
The average cost per participating trust in 2002 was £7,000 for National Health Service trusts and £3,000 for primary care trusts.
