Primary Care Trusts: Public Relations

Volume 499: debated on Wednesday 11 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what guidance his Department issues to primary care trusts on their expenditure on public relations. (298304)

Primary care trusts are allocated a budget annually and must decide as individual trusts how to prioritise this. There is no guidance given to trusts on the amount of money they should spend on public relations activities as this is a matter that should be decided locally.
