General Practitioners: Finance

Volume 496: debated on Wednesday 15 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate has been made of the likely effect on the number of GP surgeries upgraded to training practices of the £100 million in capital funding brought forward from 2010-11 to 2009-10 and 2008-09; and how much of the funding has been spent in each month since it was announced. (286650)

Our initial indications are that over 700 general practitioner practices have made bids for funding to upgrade their practices. It is too early in the programme to indicate the amount of money spent.
