HC Deb 14 June 2004 vol 422 c644W
Mr. Webb

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how much his Department has spent on psychiatric treatment for current and former Service personnel at the Priory Hospital at Bristol; and how many personnel have received such treatment in the last year. [178014]

Mr. Caplin

[holding answer 10 June 2004]: In 2003–04, the Ministry of Defence spent £169,789.99 on treating 21 serving members of the armed forces at the Priory Hospital in Bristol. The MOD does not refer former Service personnel to the Priory Group for treatment. On leaving the Services, responsibility for their medical care falls to the NHS.
