HC Deb 09 January 2001 vol 360 c529W
27. Mr. Kidney

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what priority he gives to resourcing rehabilitation services within the national health service. [142922]

Mr. Hutton

Providing effective rehabilitation after illness or injury is a high priority for the National Health Service. This year, the Department, together with Department for Education and Employment and Department of Social Security, is developing Job Retention and Rehabilitation Pilots to test ways of helping people with prolonged illness or disability to remain in work, or return to work when they are able.
