Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate he has made of the number of infections resulting from bacterially contaminated blood transfusions in England and Wales in the last 24 months; how many of those infections resulted in fatalities; and if he will make a statement. 
Gillian Merron: The following table shows the number of patients reported to have acquired a bacterial infection from transfusion of blood components in England and North Wales (the area covered by NHS Blood and Transplant) between 1 April 2008 and 31 December 2009 (20 months). Complete data for 2009-2010 are not yet available. In total, eight recipients were reported to have received a bacterial transfusion-transmitted infection, three of whom died. There are around 2.4 million transfusions in England and Wales annually.
|Financial year||Number of infected recipients||Number of recipients experiencing major morbidity( 1)||Number of fatalities|
|(1) Major morbidity is defined as any symptomatic confirmed transfusion-transmitted infection. (2) 1 April 2008 to 31 March 2009. (3) Data available from 1 April 2009 to 31 December 2009 only.|
Gillian Merron: The information is not available in the format requested. Such information as is available is in the following table, based on numbers of donations in each of the four main London areas.
|Blood collected in London( 1 ) and the south-east since 2000-01|
|(1) Data are not collated centrally on the number of blood donations collected by London boroughs.|

NHS Blood and Transplant
Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) how much his Department has spent on advertising to encourage people to donate blood in each London borough in each year since 2000; 
Information on funds spent on marketing activities by the NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) are held for England and North Wales only and cannot be broken down by local area. NHSBT's combined budget in 2009-10 for marketing activities for blood and organ donation is £19,990,933 million(1). The provisional total budget for 2010-11 is £16,626,941. Figures for planned advertising for 2011-12 and beyond are not yet available.
(1) The extra costs for 2009-10 were due to increased advertising needed to increase blood stock levels to 65,000 in anticipation of the flu pandemic, together with additional advertising to raise awareness of organ donation and increase the number of registrations on the organ donor register.
Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate has been made of the quantity of blood (a) needed and (b) likely to be donated in each London (i) hospital and (ii) borough in each of the next five years. 
Distribution of donated blood across England and North Wales is co-ordinated nationally. In 2009-10, the estimated requirement for red cells across England and North Wales is 1,878,000 units, increasing to 1,896,000 units in 2010-11. The NHS Blood and Transplant's (NHSBT) planning assumptions for the next three years anticipate 1 per cent. in need.
The number of donations the National Blood Service (part of the NHSBT) is aiming to collect in London and the South East in 2009-10 and 2010-11 is shown as follows. Data for likely donations beyond 2010-11 are not yet available.
|Area( 1)||Target 2009-10||Target 2010-11|
|(1) Data are not collated centrally on the number of blood donations likely to be needed nor collected in each London hospital or borough. Available data are shown by London area.|
Norman Lamb: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what proportion of women did not receive the result of a cervical screening test within two weeks of the test taking place in the latest period for which figures are available. 
Ann Keen: For period 2008-09 (the latest period for which the figures are available) 78.6 per cent. of women did not receive their cervical screening test results within two weeks. However, test results were available for 21.4 per cent. of women within two weeks compared to 11.1 per cent. in 2007-08, and 65.5 per cent. were available within four weeks compared to 59.6 per cent. in 2007-08.
It is a Vital Sign of the 'NHS Operating Framework 2010-11', a copy of which has already been placed in the Library, that all women should receive the results of their cervical screening tests within two weeks by 2010. 10 pilot programmes have achieved 14-day turnaround times for at least 99 per cent. of tests and with significant reductions in failed tests and in resource requirements. This is now being rolled out across the country.
Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much of the £750 million capital investment fund for community hospitals announced in July 2006 has been (a) allocated and (b) spent in respect of each hospital; and whether capital or revenue funding was allocated in each case.
