§ Dr. Wright
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what work has so far been undertaken by the clinical standards advisory group; what further work is planned; and if she will make a statement.
§ Dr. Mawhinney
The group's first report "Access to and Availability of Specialist Services" was published with a Government response in July 1993, copies of which are available in the Library. Further reports on "Diabetes" and "Standards of Clinical Care for Patients Admitted Urgently or as Emergencies" will be published shortly. Reports on "Maternity Services—Women in Normal Labour" and "Back Pain" will be published later this year. The group continues work on reports on "Chronic Schizophrenia", "Dental Anaesthesia" and "Care of the Elderly" for publication next year.
