Primary Care Trusts: Hampshire

Volume 468: debated on Thursday 6 December 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what redundancy payments were made during the last reorganisation of primary care trusts in Hampshire; and if he will make a statement. (163375)

The information is not held in the format requested as individual redundancy payments are not available centrally.

The following table shows the total expenditure by primary care trusts (PCTs) in Hampshire for 2006-07, which is the latest and only year for which this information is available.

There are two measures of expenditure. The first measure is for ‘redundancy’. These costs will, in previous years, have been included within an ‘other/miscellaneous’ category. They are for redundancy, but it is not known whether all costs included will relate to redundancy following mergers or re-organisation.

The second (stand-alone) measure is ‘PCT reorganisation; redundancies and early retirement’. It is expected that these are costs relating to organisations involved in mid year mergers/reorganisation.
