HC Deb 20 February 1990 vol 167 c703W
20. Mr. Cash

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will give further details of the recently announced £31 million allocation for medical audit.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Most of this money—£24 million—is being allocated to regional health authorities to help doctors in hospital and community health services set up new systems of quality control of clinical services known as medical audit. In addition, about £5 million will be used by family practitioner committees to further the development of medical audit in general practice and £2 million will be used to fund audit initiatives proposed by the medical royal colleges and other professional bodies.
