Volume 465: debated on Wednesday 24 October 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer by what mechanism primary care trusts will bid for the extra GP surgeries announced in his statement of 9 October on the pre-Budget report and Comprehensive Spending Review. (157611)

I have been asked to reply.

We are working with the NHS to identify where the new GP surgeries should be located, based on the measures highlighted in the Next Stage Review Interim Report (primary care clinicians, patient satisfaction and health outcomes). Funding will be allocated to these areas based on local PCT plans. A list will be made available shortly.
