Osteoporosis: Greater London

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 6 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate he has made of the cost of treating fractures resulting from osteoporosis in London, broken down by primary care trust area in the most recent period for which figures are available; and if he will make a statement. (200368)

The information requested is not collected centrally. However, information is available on the average cost to national health service providers of providing a range of fracture treatments. This information is collected each year through the NHS reference cost collection exercise. Copies of the national schedule of reference costs for 2006-07, “NHS Reference Costs 2006-07”, are available in the Library. The information is also available on the Departments website at:
