To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what estimate he has made of the savings to be made as a result of the new Primary Care Services England contract; and in what areas those savings are expected to arise.

The savings from the 2015 outsourcing of Primary Care Support Services are expected to be 40% over previous costs during the lifetime of the contract. These savings are delivered primarily through economies of scale that derive from delivery of the services from national centres as opposed to local offices, and efficiency savings derived from investment in new IT systems to streamline work processes.
