HC Deb 01 May 1990 vol 171 c531W
Mr. Hardy

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment is made by his Department of the(a) financial performance and (b) clinical success of hospitals.

Mr. Freeman

The Department does not carry out assessments centrally of the financial performance or clinical success of individual hospitals. It is for health authorities to make such assessments as they consider necessary within the framework of their processes for planning, monitoring and review of hospital performance.
