Information in respect of National Health Service spending on the lease of photocopier machines is not separately collected by the Department and as such we are unable to provide this data. However, within the context of administrative costs it should be noted that we are on target to reduce the costs of bureaucracy in the NHS by a third since 2010, with savings of £1.5 billion available for re-investment in front line services every year from 2014. In this Parliament alone, at least £6.4 billion will be saved through lower administrative costs and will be available for re-investment in front line patient services.
