To ask the Secretary of State for Health what criteria will be used in deciding on the locations of the 150 new walk-in centres and 100 new GP practices announced as part of the pre-Budget report and Comprehensive Spending Review. (167903)

[holding answer 26 November 2007]: As set out in the ‘Our NHS, Our Future’ next stage review interim report we expect the 150 health centres to be easily accessible to all members of the local population, though the precise locations of the new health centres and practices will be determined by primary care trusts based on their local needs assessment.
