HC Deb 10 November 2000 vol 356 cc432-3W
Mr. Swayne

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what proportion of new patients referred to(a) medical, (b) surgical, (c) oncological, (d) gynaecological and (e) other out-patients clinics were seen by a consultant as opposed to a junior doctor in the last 12 months. [136513]

Mr. Denham

Information is available only on the number of first attendances at consultant led out-patient clinics. This information does not differentiate between new patients who were seen by the consultant in charge of the clinic or by one of the consultant's team.
