General Practitioners: Finance

Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 20 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health which GP surgeries will be upgraded using the £100 million of capital spending being brought forward; and to what standards such surgeries will be upgraded. (247836)

I refer the hon. Member to the written answer I gave the hon. Member for South Cambridgeshire (Mr. Lansley) on 10 December 2008, Official Report, column 156W. As stated in the pre-Budget report, the key focus of investment will be to improve and extend training facilities in those areas that have historically had a lower provision of general practitioners (GPs).

It is too early to say which GP surgeries will be upgraded.
