NHS: Security

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 29 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health at how many sites (a) Safe Estates Ltd and (b) Camelot have been commissioned by the NHS to provide site security for existing or former hospital or medical facilities. (202519)

The Department has responsibility for one hospital site on which it has a current contract with Safe Estates Ltd. and Camelot. There are no other known contracts that the Department has with either firm.

The Department does not hold this information in respect of hospital sites owned and operated by the national health service. It is a matter for each NHS trust to make whatever arrangements it sees fit to cover its security needs.
