HC Deb 27 July 1998 vol 317 cc36-7W
Ms Lawrence

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what assessment he has made of the impact which the provisions made between the University Hospital of Wales Healthcare NHS Trust and Sterile Services International Limited will have on the provision of sterile services and jobs in that sector in other NHS trusts in Wales. [50715]

Mr. Win Griffiths

The agreement with Sterile Services International will provide better value for money for the Trust in obtaining sterile services and enable it to provide a better service for its 43 other customers who are mainly from the primary care sector in Cardiff. I do not expect there to be an impact on jobs in other NHS Trusts.
