§ Lord Mottistone
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they intend to issue advice to health authorities in connection with the arrangements for medical audit in the hospital and community health service.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Health (Baroness Hooper)
A draft health circular was issued to health authorities on 9th February, for consultation and information, on the action required to ensure that a framework for medical audit is in place in hospital and community health services by April 1991. Accompanying the circular was a report,Medical Audit —The Educational Implications, prepared by the Standing Committee on Postgraduate Medical Education. I have arranged for a copy to be placed in the Library.
