To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate he has made of the likely redundancy costs for each primary care trust (PCT) arising from the latest reorganisation of PCTs; and if he will make a statement.

Unfortunately the information does not exist in the format requested.

The Department collected data on the value of redundancies and early retirements due to primary care trust (PCT) reorganisation in 2006-07, but we cannot separate the redundancy element from these figures. However, the Department did collect these costs separately in 2007-08.

The information that the Department has collected is shown in the following table. Other restructuring costs include early retirement costs as well as other costs arising from the restructuring process.

The PCT reconfiguration programme was undertaken to help to improve relationships between health care and local authorities by bringing their boundaries closer together and to make savings to the local national health service by reducing management costs. These savings will be reinvested in front line services.
