§ Mr. Ruffley
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans he has for additional general practitioner surgeries in(a) the constituency of Bury St. Edmunds and (b) Suffolk. 
§ Dr. Ladyman
We have no current plans for additional general practitioner surgeries in the constituency of Bury St. Edmunds or Suffolk and there are currently no applications in the fourth wave for national health service local investment finance trust schemes in either Bury St. Edmunds or Suffolk.
It is now for primary care trusts, in partnership with strategic health authorities and other local stakeholders, to determine how best to use their funds to meet national and local priorities for improving health, tackling health inequalities and modernising services, based on the specialised knowledge they have of the local community.
