Tony Baldry: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what guidance his Department gives to NHS hospital trusts on the use of NHS equipment for private patients; and whether there are restrictions on NHS hospital trusts using specialist equipment purchased by the NHS for treating private patients. 
Mr. Bradshaw: Legislation allows a national health service trust to offer private health care so long as this does not to any significant extent interfere with the performance of its functions or obligations under NHS contracts.
A NHS foundation trust may offer private health care, provided that it complies with any restrictions in its authorisation and that the provision of NHS services remains its principal purpose. Legislation limits the total proportion of income a NHS foundation trust may derive from private charges to its 2002-03 level.
Provision of services for private patients should not prejudice the interests of NHS patients.
