HC Deb 28 February 1995 vol 255 c491W
Mr. Redmond

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will introduce into the patients charter a standard for the maximum delay for(a) the assessment and (b) the treatment of children with speech defects.

Mr. Malone

The patients charter already sets standards for maximum waiting times for in-patient treatment and out-patient treatment offered by hospital consultants. The national health service executive encourages the setting of challenging targets for other non-consultant out-patient clinics.
