Ann Keen: There is no legislative provision for the maintenance of a violent patient register. Primary care trusts (PCTs) are required to consult their Local Medical Committee, if there is one, about any proposals they have to establish a specific scheme in their area for dealing with violent patients requiring primary medical services. In setting up local arrangements PCTs might keep lists of the patients to whom these primary medical services arrangements apply but this is not a legislative requirement.
Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what surplus or deficit he expects (a) York NHS foundation trust, (b) North Yorkshire and York primary care trust and (c) Yorkshire and the Humber strategic health authority to have at the end of the 2007-08 financial year; and whether he expects North Yorkshire and York primary care trust to have brought its expenditure in the 2007-08 year into balance with its income. 
North Yorkshire and York PCT agreed a service modernisation and financial recovery plan with Yorkshire and the Humber SHA in April 2007 that outlined plans to return to financial balance in 2008-09 as well as the measures the PCT intends to take to achieve this.
Norman Lamb: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how funds from NHS underspends in the last five years have been re-allocated; and how he plans to allocate any underspends in the next 12 months. 
Mr. Bradshaw: Surpluses generated by national health service organisations in any year are carried forward, and are available to spend in future years. In each financial year, resource adjustments are applied at strategic health authority (SHA) level equal to the value of the net resource carry forward for the overall SHA economy. SHAs are then responsible for managing the distribution of these adjustments to their individual NHS organisations according to local priorities. From 2007-08, following a change to the resource accounting and budgeting rules, this adjustment excludes under or over spends generated by NHS trusts.
Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health which NHS budgets will be amended in the years from 2008-09 to 2010-11 to take into account changes in planned expenditure in those years. 
Mr. Bradshaw: The national heath service budgets for 2008-09 are currently being finalised. The level of NHS budgets for 2009-10 and 2010-11 will be informed by decisions on the composition and growth to primary care trust allocations for these years.
Ann Keen: The NHS Counter Fraud Service (CFS) pursues a multi track approach in all cases investigated. This includes the option of criminal prosecution. The CFS also seek civil recovery of losses to the national health service and investigation costs as well as a disciplinary sanction before the appropriate regulatory or disciplinary body. Of criminal prosecution cases, 95 per cent. have resulted in a guilty verdict.
Frontline staff breaks down to comprise professionally qualified clinical staff, support clinical staff and staff in general practitioners (GP) practices. Other staff comprises national health service infrastructure support and those staff with unknown qualifications.

Ann Keen: The nationality of national health service staff is not collected. The NHS Workforce Census does record the country of qualification for medical staff, including general practitioners (GPs). This is not the same as the nationality as it is possible United Kingdom (UK) nationals to qualify outside of the UK and vice versa.
