Mr. Bradshaw: There have been no occasions where the Secretary of State has chosen not to accept the Independent Reconfiguration Panel's recommendations.
Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 9 July 2008, Official Report, column 1706W, on Ipsos MORI, if he will place in the Library copies of the (a) Stakeholder Research Programme, (b) Public Perceptions of the NHS July 2007, (c) Qualitative Research into Access to GP Practices, (d) GP Satisfaction Among Ethnic Minority Groups, (e) Senior Stakeholder Survey (Quantitative), (f) Long-term Health Conditions, (g) Public Perceptions of the NHS, December 2007, (h) Patient Experience Survey - Pilot Study and ( i ) Public Perceptions of the NHS March 2008 reports. 
Mr. Bradshaw: The following reports have been placed in the Library:

Long-term Health Conditions (title at publication: Self Care: A National View in 2007 Compared to 2004-05)
The Department will place a copy of the following reports in the Library in the next 12 months:
Stakeholder Research Programme and Senior Stakeholder Survey (Quantitative).
The reports Public Perceptions of the NHS July 2007, Public Perceptions of the NHS December 2007 and Public Perceptions of the NHS March 2008 will be published as part of the Departments Freedom of Information publication scheme. These reports will be placed in the Library on publication.
The project Qualitative Research into Access to GP Practices was mistakenly listed as a report in the answer of 9 July 2008, Official Report, column 1706W. This was, in fact, a series of workshops delivered by Ipsos MORI.
Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 9 July 2008, Official Report, column 1706W, on Ipsos MORI, how much was paid to Ipsos MORI for each report. 
Mr. Bradshaw: The following amounts were paid to Ipsos MORI:
NHS Choices evaluation - public tracker survey (benchmark and one tracker)
Anne Milton: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many cycles of in vitro fertilisation treatments each primary care trust offered at the latest date for which figures are available. 
Mr. Bradshaw: In autumn 2007, the Department carried out a survey of each primary care trust in England to establish the level of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) provision. A report of the survey was published on 23 June 2008 and a copy has been placed in the Library.
The report can also be found on the Department's website at:
Tim Farron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many injuries were sustained from Class 3b and 4 lasers and intense light sources in each of the last five years. 
Mr. Bradshaw: The following table represents adverse events from laser and intense light sources that have been reported to the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) between 1 January 2003 and the 5 September 2008
|Laser 3B||Laser 4||Intense Light Source|
It is important to note that not all adverse events are reported to the MHRA. Whilst manufacturers are required to report an event if it falls under the definition of the Medical Devices Directives Vigilance, (i.e. an actual or potential injury either to a patient or the user) reporting of such events from the national health service or private healthcare facilities is voluntary.
Tom Brake: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many cases of falciparum malaria were recorded in London in each year from 1997 to 2008. 
Mr. Bradshaw: The number of recorded hospital admissions with a primary diagnosis of falciparum malaria for incidents recorded for the London strategic health authority (comprising five SHAs from 1997-98 to 2005-06 and one SHA from 2006-07) from 1997 to 2008 are given in the table as follows:
Hospital admissions and numbers of cases may differ since the same person may have been admitted on more than one occasion for the same illness/treatment episode. Data are not available on numbers of cases
Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 30 April 2008, Official Report, column 449W, on mass media, if he will place in the Library the assessments made by press officers of media coverage of (a) departmental announcements and (b) major health stories in each week of 2008. 
Mr. Bradshaw: The Department's Media Centre does not currently produce written weekly assessments of media coverage of departmental announcements and major health stories, and the Department do not employ any agencies to make such reports on its behalf.
Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many adverse events have been recorded in NHS maternity services (a) in England and (b) in each strategic health authority area in each year since 1997, broken down by type of adverse event. 
Ann Keen: The information requested is being compiled by the National Patient Safety Agency. This will be placed in the Library shortly
Angela Browning: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what funding allocations his Department has made to support the delivery of its National Strategy for England in the next five years. 
Mr. Bradshaw: A draft of a National Dementia Strategy was published on 19 June for consultation. The consultation closes on 11 September and we will carefully consider all the responses we receive before deciding the final shape of the Strategy, and what resources are available to support its implementation. Funding will be announced around the same time when the strategy is published.
Peter Bottomley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) if he will estimate the extra costs incurred by the Worthing and Southlands Hospital Trust as a result of use of the CERNER NHS IT system in (a) 2007-08 and (b) 2008-09; and what the expected source of the funding of the additional costs will be; 
(2) which other NHS acute hospital trusts have the version of the CERNER NHS IT system supplied to the Worthing and Southlands Hospital Trust; what assessment he has made of (a) present and (b) future costs and benefits of the system; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Bradshaw: The implementation of a strategic hospital clinical IT system represents a major change programme. There is an inevitable initial increase in, primarily, staff costs both during preparation and during initial deployment, and then as the system is bedded in and staff familiarity with the new functionality develops.
The trusts business cases for the change have recognised that these initial increased locally sourced costs are offset by the benefits realised by the trust over the life of the system. These will include, over time, a patient administration system with integration with other systems and sophisticated reporting; order communications and diagnostics reporting, including all pathology and radiology tests and tests ordered in primary care; and scheduling for beds, tests, and theatres.
Information on any additional costs incurred by Worthing and Southlands Hospital Trust arising from the deployment of Cerner software is not held centrally.
Of the NHS acute trusts which have to date received deployments of the Cerner Millennium system, as at 31 August 2008 the following had the same (R0.05) version as that currently being used at the Worthing and Southlands Hospitals NHS trust:
Weston Area Health NHS Trust;
Winchester and Eastleigh Healthcare NHS Trust;
Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust.
The costs and benefits will be identified in the local business cases.
