Health Centres

Volume 481: debated on Monday 27 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what data returns his Department plans to collect from (a) strategic health authorities and (b) primary care trusts to assess levels of implementation of the programme for a new GP-led health centre in each area. (229964)

Primary care trusts (PCTs) are asked to provide a monthly update on progress against national procurement milestones, confirmation of compliance with departmental core criteria, the expected date of service commencement, and where known, the postcode of the service location. This information is provided by PCTs, and signed off by strategic health authorities (SHAs).

In addition, we have ad hoc discussions with SHAs on any issues arising.
