HC Deb 27 June 1996 vol 280 c193W
Mr. Gapes

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate he has made of the number and proportion of hospitals, and the number and proportion of general practitioner practices, which now have systems in place to handle the unique NHS patient number. [33990]

Mr. Horam

[pursuant to his reply, 21 June 1996, c. 669]: I regret that there was an error in my previous reply.

The final sentence should have read: At the end of May 1996, the number of practices with this capacity was 5,700, which is 67 per cent. of all computerised practices".
