HL Deb 04 November 2002 vol 640 c59WA
Lord McColl of Dulwich

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What progress they are making on drawing up the national service framework on renal services; and whether specific funding will be available to implement it. [HL6I55]

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath:

Each national service framework is developed with the assistance of an external reference group, which brings together health professionals, service users, carers, health service managers, partner agencies and other advocates. The work of the renal national service framework is well under way. The disposition of resources following the Spending Review 2002 will be determined shortly.
