§ Mr. Kirkwood
To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) where nurse education is organised across more than one hospital, what are the implications for such education where one hospital opts out;
(2) whether the budget for nurse education currently with the district health authority will devolve to a hospital which opts out which is currently operating or partly operating a school of nursing.
§ Mr. Mellor
There will be a further working paper on education and training next month which will address these issues.
