Ms Rosie Winterton: The Department has not discussed the matter with Coventry primary care trust. It is the responsibility of strategic health authorities (SHAs) to deliver both overall financial balance for their local health communities and to ensure each and every body achieves financial balance. This is now a matter for West Midlands South SHA.
Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the average cost per patient episode is at (a) a dental access centre and (b) a dental surgery operating under the general dental services contract. 
Ms Rosie Winterton: The Department only holds information on its central contribution to dental access centres and does not hold full cost information, which includes any primary care trust (PCT) contribution and patient charge revenue. The Department does not have complete data from PCTs on patient throughput in dental access centres. However, based on the Department's total central contribution to the cost of dental access centres and the available data on patient throughput, the estimated average cost per patient episode in 200405 was a maximum of £141.

Ms Rosie Winterton: As at 30 September 2004 there were no qualified dental therapists employed by Burntwood, Lichfield and Tamworth Primary care trust (PCT). There are two dental therapists employed by PCTs within the Shropshire and Staffordshire strategic health authority area.
