Mr. Pelling: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many breast cancer patients have no access to a breast care nurse. [230277]

Ann Keen: This information is not collected centrally. It is for cancer networks to work in partnership with strategic health authorities, national health service trusts and postgraduate deaneries to put in place a sustainable process to assess, plan and review their work force needs. Commissioners should benchmark their local clinical nurse specialist (CNS) provision against similar primary care trusts and take action where the CNS work force is found to be insufficient.

Cancer: Health Services

Mr. Liddell-Grainger: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what (a) current and (b) capital spending took place per capita in relation to cancer treatment and services for (i) England and (ii) each primary care trust within the South West Strategic Health Authority in each financial year from 1997 to 2007. [230975]

Ann Keen: Expenditure data on cancer treatment and services by current and capital expenditure are not available.

Programme budgeting data, available for financial years 2003-04 to 2006-07, show total cancer expenditure at England and primary care trust level for the South West strategic health authority region. These are provided in the following tables.

Notes:
1. With the exception of 2003-04 figures, all figures have been calculated using PCT expenditure on own population. Expenditure figures on PCT’s own population are not available for 2003-04, therefore net expenditure values have been used instead.
2. Local population figures used to calculate per capita expenditure have been weighted to account for age, sex and need.

South West strategic health authority PCT data for financial year 2006-07 are presented separately in the following table, as they are not directly comparable due to a PCT reconfiguration in 2006.
