Community Hospitals

Volume 457: debated on Tuesday 6 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 31 January 2007, Official Report, columns 403-4W, on community hospitals, if she will list the six bids to the capital investment fund for community hospitals which were either withdrawn, refused or have outstanding queries. (123539)

The proposal for funding for the Newton Abbott hospital was rejected because it did not meet the criteria for funding. The proposals for a community health centre in Stoke on Trent and Rotherham primary care centre were withdrawn from wave one by the strategic health authorities, although the Rotherham proposal has been resubmitted as part of the second wave. Decisions are still outstanding on the following three schemes—the South Bristol community hospital, the Stamford and Rutland hospital and the Hornsey central hospital.
