Hospitals: Hygiene

Volume 459: debated on Thursday 3 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much has been spent on improving hygiene in hospitals in each of the last five years. (132729)

Information is not collected centrally on the amount that has been spent on hospital hygiene in the last five years. However, as a measure of the importance that the Government attach to this matter, a capital fund of £50 million was launched in December 2006 to support local initiatives to improve hygiene standards.
