§ 42. Mr. Riddick
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what steps he is taking to improve efficiency in the National Health Service in the Yorkshire region.
§ Mr. Mellor
Ministers and the National Health Service management board regularly review the performance of all regional health authorities, culminating in an annual ministerial review meeting after which an action plan is set for the coming year. Yorkshire RHA's latest review was in July. A record of that meeting, together with the action plan for 1988–89 which included a number of measures to improve efficiency, was placed in the Library.
