Occupational Therapists

Annette Brooke: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many vacancies there were for occupational therapists working with (a) children and (b) adults on (i) 1 April 2004 and (ii) 1 April 2005 in (A) Dorset and (B) England; and if she will make a statement on the provision of occupational services in Dorset. [8344]

Mr. Byrne: Information is not collected centrally on the number of vacancies for occupational therapists working specifically with children or adults. The table shows the rate and number of vacancies for occupational therapists in England and by selected organisation within Dorset and Somerset strategic health authority (SHA) as at March 2004.

Occupational therapy services in Dorset are provided by the national health service organisations shown in the table plus three local authorities. The number of occupational therapists employed within Dorset and Somerset SHA has increased by 149 or 43 per cent. between 1997 and 2004, and the rate of vacancies lasting three months or more is 1.1 per cent. which compares well with the England average.

Mr. Evans: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the waiting time to see a physiotherapist was in each NHS trust area in each of the last 10 years. [10097]

Mr. Byrne: The information requested is not collected centrally.

Primary Care

Steve Webb: To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether the Government achieved its target of delivering (a) 500 primary care centres and (b) 3,000 modernised general practitioner premises by December 2004; and if she will make a statement. [9377]

Mr. Byrne: The targets published in the NHS Plan were for 500 one-stop primary care centres to be provided and up to 3,000 family doctors' premises to be substantially refurbished or replaced by 2004. In December 2004, 510 one-stop primary care centres and the refurbishments or replacements of 2,850 general practitioner premises had been completed or were under construction. These have resulted from the £900 million invested in primary care buildings since 2000.

Private Finance Initiative

Mr. Burstow: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will set out for all private finance initiative projects granted approval by her Department since 1997 (a) their total value, (b) the revenue payments made to date and (c) the estimated revenue payments for the life of each private finance initiative contract. [1561]

Mr. Byrne: Information on all private finance initiative projects with a capital value of £10 million or greater given the go ahead by the Department since 1997 and details of unitary payments, equivalent of revenue payments, for schemes which have reached financial close are shown in the tables.

It is not possible to include details of the unitary payments for schemes yet to reach financial close as they are not finalised and are commercially sensitive.

1. The figures are in nominal terms ie the Department has applied a deflator (RPI—the one normally used in contracts) to the baselines figure submitted to it by the Trust. Figures will vary as a result of changes in RPI.
2. Unitary payments are subject to satisfactory performance by the contractor and other factors such as refinancing.
3. Details of length of contracts for each scheme are only kept centrally for prioritised schemes (marked *). For other schemes in the table the contract length is assumed to be 30 years, the standard length introduced under the NHS Standard Form Contract in 1999.
