Ms Rosie Winterton [holding answer 10 November 2005]: The Department's review of patient and public involvement (PPI) in health is part of the wider White Paper consultation, Your health, your care, your say". The results of the review are being fed into the development of the White Paper proposals. The results of the PPI review activities will be made available in the new year and will appear on the Department's website on the policy page for patient and public involvement. Hard copies of the results will also be available on request.
Mr. Clappison: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how she expects (a) hospitals and (b) other assets providing clinical services owned by primary care trusts to be treated under her plans for commissioning a patient-led NHS. 
Mr. Grogan: To ask the Secretary of State for Health which primary care trusts (PCTs) run (a) community and (b) other hospital facilities; and if she will list each such facility, broken down by PCT. 
Mr. Byrne: In our proposals sent out on 28 July, we indicated that we were minded to require primary care trusts (PCTs) to reduce their service-provision functions by the end of 2008. Since that document, we have listened to stakeholders. The policy moving forward, in relation to service-provision, is that this will be a matter for PCTs to determine locally, so any move away from direct provision of services will be a decision for the localnational health service within the framework set out in the forthcoming White Paper and after local consultation, including professions allied to medicine.
We will support PCTs who want to do that, but we will not instruct PCTs to do it nor will we impose any timetable. What matters is getting the best services for each communityand that is what the White Paper will focus on.

Mr. Graham Stuart: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what progress Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals Trust has made in integrating services for stroke patients with community health providers and social services. 
Mr. Byrne: The Hull and East Riding stroke service set up its organised stroke care in December 2000. This includes comprehensive facilities for stroke patients in community settings, including three inner city rehabilitation units working in partnership with private nursing home providers and a social services residential home. These are three, eight bedded units one at Rossmore Nursing Home, one at St. Marys Nursing Home and one at Alderson Resource (Social Services). The service has well established neurotherapists working in the community across the rehabilitation facilities.
Work is also underway in the East Riding to develop partnership working further with Social Services to provide day rehabilitation facilities utilising the skills of therapy and health care professionals working together with Social Services.
A service re-design is currently underway to strengthen community health provision for stroke patients further. Community stroke nurse specialists will work together with a team of stroke support workers to support the nurse consultant in stroke with the continuing physical and clinical requirements of stroke patients in community rehabilitation settings and also to develop more support in nursing and residential homes by providing training and expertise to support staff working in those settings.
