HC Deb 16 June 1992 vol 209 c473W
19. Mr. Martlew

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what proposals she has to alter the boundaries of the three district health authorities in Cumbria.

Mr. Sackville

None at present. Northern regional health authority, together with its district health authorities (DHAs) and family health services authorities are currently considering the best way to develop DHAs' central role in purchasing health care on behalf of their residents; including the possibility of joint working with neighbouring authorities.
