NHS Plus

Volume 467: debated on Thursday 15 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on recent developments in NHS Plus services for private sector employers. (162291)

The Department is currently establishing five demonstration sites in England for innovative delivery of health and work services to private employers, in particular focusing on small and medium-sized businesses, by providing a £10 million capital fund. A further £10 million capital fund is available for an additional tranche of demonstration sites to enrich the developing good practice in this area. This will both bring benefits to the private sector in the areas in which the demonstration sites are located, and establish good practice from which others can learn.
