HC Deb 28 January 1994 vol 236 c419W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) how many non-fund-holding practices operating in the area covered by the Macclesfield constituency have declared an interest in becoming fundholding;

(2) how many (a) fundholding and (b) non-fundholding general practitioner practices operate in the area covered by the Macclesfield parliamentary constituency.

Dr. Mawhinney

Regional health authorities are responsible for managing the general practitioner fundholding scheme in their areas. Nationally, 25 per cent. of the population is covered by GP fundholders. In Mersey region, this is 35 per cent. Information by constituency is not available and could be determined only at disproportionate cost.
