The NHS Security Management Service (SMS) can assist employers through guidance on assessing risks and acting to protect staff from assaults and, where incidents do occur, on taking action against offenders. The NHS SMS also works with stakeholders, including the Social Partnership Forum, to promote the safety and security of NHS staff.
Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what statistics each NHS organisation reported to his Department in Estates Returns Information Collection on (a) the number of car parking spaces it provided for (i) staff, (ii) patients and (iii) visitors, (b) the average fee charged per hour for (A) patient, (B) visitor and (C) staff parking and (c) the number of parking spaces for disabled people provided in each year from 1997-98 to 2008-09. 
Since 2001-02, the Department has collected annual data from national health service trusts on car parking provision and any associated charges through the Estates Returns Information Collection. The available data for each year since 2001-02 have been placed in the Library.
The provision of hospital car parking and any associated charges are decided locally by individual NHS trusts to help cover the cost of running, maintaining and securing a car park. All NHS trusts should have exemption and concessionary schemes in place to ensure that patients and carers who visit hospital regularly are not
disadvantaged. They should also have sustainable public transport plans in place for staff and visitors.
Ms Abbott: To ask the Secretary of State for Health which hospitals in each trust are subject to a private finance initiative contract; what the length is of each such contract; and what the annual unitary charge is that each such hospital is charged under its contract. 
Mr. Mike O'Brien: The information in respect of the private finance initiative schemes has been placed in the Library. The list shows all national health service trusts and primary care trusts with a private finance initiative contract with the name and location of the scheme; the capital value; the length of the contract and the annual unitary charge (which are uprated annually for inflation).
Mr. Mike O'Brien: Information that primary care trusts are required to provide to the Department via central data collections is shown in the table. Other data are collected on behalf of the Department by the NHS Information Centre and other arm's length bodies.
The table shows the frequency of each data collection, including monthly and annual data. The table was extracted from the Information Catalogue which is held and published by the NHS Information Centre. Data collections from the NHS are subject to regulation by the Review of Central Returns (ROCR) process. ROCR is administered by the NHS Information Centre.

Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 12 January 2010, Official Report, column 912W, on health services: armed forces, (1) what NHS expenditure on (a) prosthetic and (b) orthotic care was in each year from 2000-01 to 2009-10; and how much is budgeted for such care by each strategic health authority area in each year from 2010-11 to 2014-15; 
(2) how many people received (a) prosthetic and (b) orthotic care from the NHS in each year from 2000-01 to 2009-10; and what estimate he has made of the number of people who will receive such treatment in each strategic health authority area in each year from 2010-11 to 2014-15. 
Mr. Mike O'Brien: This information is not collected centrally. The provision of prosthetic and orthotic care and services is undertaken by a multidisciplinary clinical and assessment team. This may include NHS health and trauma care, mental health assessment, occupational health therapy, prostheses and orthotic devices and ongoing assessments and care.
Funding for prosthetic and orthotic care and services is provided within the NHS budget. NHS expenditure on separate or accumulative elements of care and services for the provision of prosthetic and orthotic care and services is not collected centrally.
