§ Mr. Riddick
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on the resource management scheme operated by Huddersfield health authority.
§ Mr. Dorrell
Huddersfield health authority has made excellent progress with the implementation of resource management at Huddersfield royal infirmary, since the hospital was named as a resource management pilot site in 1986. The work at Huddersfield and the other five pilot sites has provided valuable information about resource management, and is being used to support the extension of resource management to all other large acute hospitals in the country.
