Hospitals: Cleaning Services

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 29 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) which hospitals in (a) Southend and (b) Essex had not been deep cleaned by the target date; and if he will make a statement; (198741)

(2) how much was given to each hospital in (a) Southend and (b) Essex to fund its deep clean; and if he will make a statement.

As set out in my written ministerial statement on 21 April, Official Report, columns 93-94WS, a list of the trusts which have undertaken or are undertaking a deep clean as part of this national programme is available in the Library. This list sets out which trusts completed their deep clean by 31 March 2008 and which are still undertaking their deep clean and are due to complete by the end of May 2008.

Information provided by strategic health authorities (SHAs) shows that they have all made available the funding they promised for the programme, as also set out in my written ministerial statement. Further information on the implementation of the deep clean of the national health service is available from SHAs.
