HC Deb 30 January 2002 vol 379 cc436-7W
Mr. Randall

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many patients were in each general practitioner practice within the Hillingdon health authority in each of the last seven years. [31357]

Mr. Hutton

Under the terms of the Data Protection Act registration, we do not release data which identifies individual practices. As the main element of the general practitioner's remuneration is based on the number of patients on their list, it would be inappropriate to release the information requested.
