Scarborough Hospital: Cleaning Services

Volume 472: debated on Monday 3 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health for what reasons Scarborough hospital has not received a deep clean; and if he will make a statement. (190439)

All trusts were required to submit and agree their deep clean plans with primary care trusts in their area by 14 December 2007 and this process has been monitored and assessed by strategic health authorities (SHAs). All deep cleans will be complete by the end of March 2008.

As set out in the written ministerial statement by my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State (Alan Johnson) on 17 January 2008, Official Report, columns 38-39WS, further information on the implementation of the deep clean of the NHS is available from SHAs.
