§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether the proposed sale of Fullerton hospital for old people at Denaby, Doncaster, will be taken into account in the local health authority's general manager and senior manager's performance-related pay scheme.
§ Mr. Mellor
The assessment for performance-related pay will take account of all the objectives which have been set for the manager concerned. We do not hold centrally information about the objectives set for individual managers. For this purpose property sales or planned hospital closures would normally be set in the context of wider objectives such as improving the use of ark authority's resources or developing new patterns of service and the assessment would reflect the achievement of these wider objectives.
