Mr. Paice: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what percentage of parishes in (a) rural and (b) urban areas have a pharmacy. [85133]

Andy Burnham: This information is not held centrally.


Charles Hendry: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) which NHS trusts are recruiting new junior physiotherapists in 2006-07; [87409]

(2) how many people have qualified as physiotherapists in each of the past five years; and what proportion of those are employed in the NHS. [87410]

Ms Rosie Winterton: This information is not collected centrally.

Preventative Health Spending

Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether she has established an expert group on preventative health spending. [84465]

Caroline Flint: The White Paper “Our health, our care, our say: a new direction for Community Services” sets out a vision to provide people with good quality social care and national health service services in the communities where they live.

It sets out proposals for “an expert group to develop robust definitions and measures of preventative health spending, to report later in 2006;...”(Paragraph 6.34).

The national reference group for health and wellbeing is being established which will take forward this and other related White Paper commitments. Membership and remit of the group will be published when discussions with stakeholders are complete.

Primary Care Trusts

Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 13 February 2006, Official Report, column 1792W, on primary care trusts, what the overall level of investment in enhanced services by primary care trusts (PCTs) was in 2005-06; what the originally planned level of national investment in enhanced services by PCTs was; and if she will make a statement. [85828]

Ms Rosie Winterton: The overall level of national investment in enhanced services by primary care trusts (PCTs) in 2005-06 is forecast to be £649 million. The planned level of national investment (known as the enhanced service floor) was £676 million.

Any issues raised by either PCTs or their local medical committee regarding enhanced service investment can, if all local routes have been exhausted, be referred to the jointly chaired NHS Employers/General Practitioners Committee Implementation Coordination Group for advice.

Road Accidents (Compensation)

Mr. Amess: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much money was recovered by hospitals from insurers towards the cost of treatment of persons injured in road accidents in each of the last 10 years for which figures are available. [83767]

Ms Rosie Winterton: Hospitals have for more than 70 years been able to recover the costs of providing treatment to the victims of road traffic accidents where the injured person successfully claims personal injury compensation from the person responsible for causing the injury, through their insurer. However, the Road Traffic (NHS Charges) Act 1999 introduced a streamlined, centralised recovery scheme, operated by the compensation recovery unit, part of the Department for Work and Pensions, on behalf of the Secretary of State. Recoveries since that scheme was introduced in April 1999 are as shown in the table.

Amount recovered (£)















Skin Cancer

Lynne Featherstone: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many cases of skin cancer there have been in each constituency in each of the last five years, broken down by (a) age and (b) sex. [86530]

John Healey: I have been asked to reply.

The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician, who has been asked to reply.

Letter from Karen Dunnell, dated 24 July 2006:

Speech Therapy (Children)

Annette Brooke: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment has been made of the effects of treating children with speech and language difficulties in (a) inclusive settings and (b) on a one-to-one basis; and if she will make a statement. [87150]

Mr. Ivan Lewis: No assessment has been carried out centrally. It is for primary care trusts in partnership with strategic health authorities, local authorities and other local stakeholders to determine how best to use their funds to meet national and local priorities for improving health, tackling health inequalities and modernising services. This process provides the means for addressing local needs within the health community including the provision of speech and language therapy.

Local healthcare professionals are best placed to decide whether speech and language therapy services should be provided in inclusive or one-to-one settings based on the assessed need of each child. Both methods can have positive outcomes.
