§ Mr. Milburn
To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many hospitals have(a) succeeded and (b) failed to meet each of the targets in the patients charter in each region in each quarter since they were introduced.
§ Dr. Mawhinney
Data on performance by individual hospitals against patients charter rights and standards is not available centrally, although a package of key data is collected about the performance of district health authorities. Information about the performance of individual hospitals in this area during 1992–93 has recently been published by district health authorities in the form of patients charter annual reports. Copies of reports can be obtained from the district health authority concerned.
