Jonathan Djanogly calls on Health Secretary to look into Hinchingbrooke hospital grant anomaly


2nd June 2015

Jonathan Djanogly calls on the Secretary of State for Health to look into a grant of £8 million given by the old Huntingdonshire PCT to Hinchingbrooke hospital which was subsequently converted into a loan and is now treated as a deficit in the accounts.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con): In 2004 the then Huntingdonshire primary care trust said that it would give Hinchingbrooke hospital a grant of £8 million towards the cost of a new PFI treatment centre. Shortly before the PCT’s demise, it changed without discussion the terms of the grant and made it a loan, which has since been treated in its accounts as a deficit. If I write to my right hon. Friend, will he look into that patently unfair treatment?

Mr Hunt: Of course. One of my biggest concerns is that many of the hospitals now facing huge deficits are seeing their situation made infinitely worse by PFI debt. We will continue to do everything we can to help hospitals deal with that.
