To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how much has been spent on diagnostic equipment for cancer including MRI and CT scanners at Bedford Hospital NHS Trust in each year since 2010; and what the average spend on diagnostic equipment for cancer was per capita year in each of those years.
The organisation-specific per capita information requested is not held centrally.
On 27 September the Government announced a £200 million programme of spending to replace MRI machines, CT scanners and breast screening equipment across the country. The equipment will improve the quality of screening and speed of diagnosis and is part of the Government’s commitment to ensure 55,000 more people survive cancer each year. Recipients of this funding will be confirmed in due course.
