[Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] — Backbench business — Private Finance Initiative
Mark Pawsey (Rugby, Conservative)
My neighbour and colleague is making a strong case about the impact of the UHCW in the health economy of Warwickshire, but my interest is my local hospital of St Cross in Rugby, which is part of the same trust. One of our big concerns is that, with such a large proportion of the health economy going into the PFI hospital, in times of budget pressure such as now, the bias will always be towards the PFI contract, which must be fulfilled and
maintained, but that might be to the detriment of other hospitals locally and, in particular, those in the same trust.
