To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list those hospital services classified as regional services which he proposes to de-designate from 1 April 1995; what representations he has had from the chairmen of Welsh health authorities concerning the de-designation of these services; and if he will publish his assessment of the effect of de-designation subregionally; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Redwood

The following protected former regional services are to be de-designated from 1 April 1995:

  • Bone Marrow Transplantation Service
  • Medical Genetics Service
  • Pharmaceutical Service:
  • Drugs Information Service
  • Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance Service
  • Surgical Dressings Quality Control Service
  • Poisons Information Service
  • Renal Transplantation Service

It is open to any service provider or commissioner to argue against de-designation until April 1996. No such representations have been received to date from health authorities in Wales.
