Mr. Lansley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the value is of off-balance sheet private finance initiative projects that his Department proposes to enter on its balance sheet in the present financial year. 
Mr. Bradshaw: A small number of national health service PFI schemes are regarded under current accounting standards as 'on balance sheet'. The asset/liability reported for these schemes for the latest year for which audited accounts are available, 2007-08, are in the following table. We expect these to continue to be reported as on balance sheet for the current financial year (2008-09).

The Chancellor announced in the March 2008 budget that the accounts of central Government Departments would be produced under international financial reporting standards from financial year 2009-10. The Department is now undertaking a full assessment of moving to the new standards which includes examining the accounting and resource implications for the NHS's private finance initiative and other public-private partnership schemes currently accounted for as off balance sheet.
Mr. Gordon Prentice: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many non-UK registered doctors in further training in the NHS have been the subject of (a) disciplinary and (b) criminal proceedings for the examination of a patient for which they had no authority. 
Ann Keen: The Department does not collect this information centrally, and is not directly involved in the disciplining of individual doctors. Decisions about whether a doctor should be disciplined are a matter for the General Medical Council.
Ann Keen: The average number of general practitioners per 100,000 population in (b) Derbyshire and (c) England in each year since 1997 is shown as follows, along with the number of hospital doctors per 100,000 population in England in each year since 1997.
Although primary care trusts (PCTs) serve a defined geographical area, hospital trusts are not defined in this way. Consequently, it is not possible to give a figure for the number of doctors per 100,000 population as it would only include those employed directly by the PCT and would be incomplete.
|All GPs (excluding retainers and registrars) per 100,000 population for selected organisations in England, as at 1997 to 2007|
|Hospital and Community Health Services (HCHS): Medical and dental staff( 2) within specified organisations in England, 1997 to 2007|

(1) In 2006 Amber Valley PCT, Chesterfield PCT, Derbyshire Dales and South Derbyshire PCT, Erewash PCT, High Peak and Dales PCT and North Eastern Derbyshire PCT merged to form Derbyshire County PCT. Figures prior to 2006 are an aggregate of these six predecessor organisations.
(2) Figure excludes medical hospital practitioners and medical clinical assistants, most of whom are GPs working part time in hospitals.
(3) Although PCTs serve a defined geographical area, hospital trusts are not defined in this way. Consequently it is not possible to give a figure for the number of doctors and nurses per 100,000 population as it would only include those employed directly by the PCT and would be incomplete.
1. Data for Chesterfield are not available. Data are available for trusts and PCTs that provide or provided services within the Chesterfield constituency.
2. Data are not available for the specific geographical area of Derbyshire. The data used here are for both PCTs within Derbyshire for comparability as they were formed from the two former health authorities in Derbyshire.
3. Data as at 1 October 1997-99, 30 September 2000-07.
