To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether the NHS performance star ratings in 2003 will take the same form as in 2002. 
§ Mr. Hutton
From this year, the Commission for Health Improvement (CHI) will be responsible for publication of NHS Performance Ratings. CHI will broadly follow the methods used for 2001–02. This year will also be the first time that full performance ratings will be given to Mental Health and Primary Care Trusts.
