To ask the Secretary of State for Health which websites were operated by his Department in addition to its main website in the last five years. (251481)

Under the Transformational Government agenda, the Department completed an audit of the websites that it operated in March 2007. In addition to its two main websites:

www.dh.gov.uk

and

www.nhs.uk

it identified 224 websites. A copy of which has been placed in the Library.

As at 26 January 2009, this figure had reduced to 91.

To establish the number of websites operated between January 2004 and the Department’s website audit would incur disproportionate costs.
