HL Deb 15 December 1994 vol 559 c135WA
Lord Elton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

In the light of the recommendations made by the NHS Research and Development Task Force chaired by Professor Culyer how they will ensure the NHS continues to support undergraduate medical education.

Baroness Cumberlege

My honourable friend the Minister for Health has asked Dr. Graham Winyard, National Health Service Executive Health Care Director, to chair an advisory group to make recommendations by March 1995 on future arrangements for allocating funds and contracting for NHS service support and facilities for teaching medical undergraduates. The aim is for the new arrangements to take effect, after appropriate consultation, in April 1996.

Membership of the advisory group will be drawn from a range of interests in the NHS and in education. A copy of the terms of reference will be placed in the Library.
