Surrey and Borders NHS Foundation Trust

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 16 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will initiate an investigation into Surrey and Borders NHS Foundation Trust's sale of public land and property in Epsom. (244558)

National health service foundation trusts have the freedom to sell land and buildings subject to provisions in legislation. Therefore, this is a matter for Surrey and Borders NHS Foundation Trust. We have written to Graham Cawsey, Chair of the organisation, informing him of the hon. Member's inquiry. He will reply shortly and a copy of the letter will be placed in the Library. Any concerns thereafter may also be directed to the chair of Monitor (the statutory name of which is the Independent Regulator of NHS Foundation Trusts).
