Health Education

Volume 479: debated on Thursday 17 July 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) how many (a) health promotion centres and (b) health promotion resource centres have been (i) opened and (ii) closed in England in each of the last five years; (212221)

(2) how many (a) health promotion centres and (b) health promotion resource centres are operating in England.

The Department does not hold information centrally or at regional level on the number of health promotion centres and health promotion resource centres opened and closed in England over the last five years, nor on those that are currently operating. It is the responsibility of local national health service organisations to make decisions on the provision of services for their communities, taking into account the needs and well-being of their local populations.
