Mid Essex Primary Care Trust

Volume 486: debated on Wednesday 21 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what reasons were reported to him by the Chief Executive of NHS Mid Essex for the decision to change the name of the Mid Essex Primary Care Trust; and if he will make a statement. (249899)

The information requested is not held by the Department.

Primary care trusts (PCTs) have the freedom to choose whether or not they make the transition to the new identity, ‘NHS Local’ (rather than ‘Local’ PCT). In order to keep costs to a minimum, we advise that the transition is made when it is practically and economically feasible to do so through planned replacement programmes. This may be by, for example, exhausting existing supplies of stationery and updating property signage.

You may wish to inquire with your local PCT for further information.
