HC Deb 09 March 1993 vol 220 c485W
Mr. Redmond

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will provide a list of health authorities in England which on 31 January had placed limitations on extra-contractual referrals.

Dr. Mawhinney

This information is not held centrally. However, it has always been recognised that purchasers may need to manage the timing of the commitment of funds for some extra-contractual referrals, in the same way as they do for contracted services.
