Ms Rosie Winterton: The principal element of dental services are primary care services provided mainly through the general dental service (GDS) supplemented, since 1998, by personal dental service (PDS) pilots. The GDS is currently managed on a national basis as a non-discretionary service. Expenditure is not pre-determined by funding allocations but is driven largely by the volume of NHS care provided to patients by dentists. Gross expenditure on GDS and PDS services, including the funding contribution from patient charges, is shown in the table.

Caroline Flint: The Department directly employs one nutritionist. However, the Department has regular contact with and seeks advice from dieticians and nutritionists from the British Dietetic Association, the Nutrition Society and other relevant professional organisations.
Mr. Steen: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many doctors have been (a) assessed and (b) entered on the specialist register by the Postgraduate Medical Education and Training Board, broken down by region; and how many doctors have received additional training to satisfy the board's requirements for a particular register. 
Mr. Byrne: Information on the number of doctors employed in non-standard or trust grade posts submitted by national health service trusts in the September 2004 NHS work force census has been placed in the Library.
To ask the Secretary of State for Health at what cost the Department's Efficiency Map, published on 13 May, was produced; for how long she

expects the document to remain in draft form for discussion; and what improvements in efficiency she expects to result from its publication. 
Mr. Byrne: The efficiency map was published by the Department of Health at the total cost of £4,861 and is part of the communications strategy for our programme to deliver £3.8 billion worth of efficiency gains by 200708.
Mr. Burstow: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what data on the (a) nature and (b) volume of elder abuse has been collected to date as part of the Modernisation of Adult Social Care Research Initiative. 
Mr. Byrne: As part of the modernisation of adult social care initiative, a three-year study has been commissioned from the University of Hull looking at partnerships and regulation in protection of adults. The aim of the study is to examine the operation of the range of regulatory frameworks relevant to adult protection for all service user groups including older people. It is focusing on the system designed to identify and respond to incidents of abuse and the links between adult protection and criminal justice initiatives.
A mapping exercise will be conducted to identify models of partnership working between different agencies and the extent of different regulatory frameworks. The researchers will also be undertaking interviews with a range of stakeholders including service users and their advocates. The study will be completed in 2006.
David Davis: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much was spent per capita from central Government funds on health in (a) the East Riding of Yorkshire and (b) England in each of the last five years. 
The following table shows expenditure per weighted head of population in England, and by the strategic health authority, which includes the East Riding of Yorkshire area, for 19992000 to 200304, which is the latest year for which audited figures are available.

Mr. Dismore: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans she has to centralise decision making on NHS capital expenditure away from strategic health authorities; and if she will make a statement. 
Mr. Byrne: There are no plans to centralise decision making on national health service capital expenditure. Up to 200506 capital expenditure limits have been set by the Department for strategic health authorities, primary care trusts and NHS trusts primarily on a formula basis. From 200607, we will introduce a process where organisations put forward investment plans based on what they need and what is affordable. This should increase the extent to which capital expenditure reflects local circumstances. This policy is still being developed, and further details will be set out in the NHS financial strategy to be published in the autumn.
