§ Mr. Gareth Wardell
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will ask general medical practitioners in Wales to seek to place their annual reports in the local public library.
§ Mr. Gwilym Jones
The terms of service for doctors require GPs to provide family health services authorities (FHSAs) an annual report relating to the provision of personnel medical services. This is a confidential report to the FHSA which is not empowered to disclose its contents to any other person.
I see no merit in seeking an amendment to this arrangement which would, in any case, require to be negotiated with the representative body of the profession.
