NHS: Private Finance Initiative

Written parliamentary question to the Secretary of State for Health

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Sharon Hodgson: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many NHS Private Finance Initiative schemes have been signed since 2010.

Philip Dunne: Total future National Health Service Private Finance Initiative (PFI) payments in 2010 totalled £73.4 billion. Since 2010, four such hospital schemes have reached financial close. Three of these were PFI schemes at an advanced stage when the Coalition Government came into office in 2010. The fourth (Sandwell & West Birmingham), was approved under the new Government’s reformed Private Finance 2 (PF2) model announced in the 2012 Autumn Statement.
