To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many regional NHS banks have been established since 1990. (79669)

There is only one NHS Bank, which covers all areas of the NHS in England. The Government’s commitment to establish an NHS Bank was included in “Delivering the NHS Plan” published in July 2000. The NHS Bank existed in shadow form in 2002-03, and from 2003-04 it has continued as an advisory body.
