Eastern and Coastal Kent Primary Care Trust: Cleaning Services

Volume 475: debated on Wednesday 7 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much funding has been allocated to (a) Eastern and Coastal Kent Primary Care Trust and (b) East Kent Hospitals NHS Trust for deep cleaning. (195139)

All trusts were required to submit and agree costed 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).

As set out in the written ministerial statement given by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State, on 21 April 2008, Official Report, column 93-94WS, information provided by SHAs shows that they have all made available the funding they promised for the programme. Further information on the implementation of the deep clean of the national health service is available from SHAs.
