HC Deb 20 January 2003 vol 398 c139W
Chris Grayling

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the risks that those public health laboratories transferring to NHS trusts will lose their accreditation with United Kingdom Accreditation Services or with Clinical Pathology Accreditation; and what action has been taken to minimise these risks.

Ms Blears

Our assessment is that transfer to national health services trusts does not affect the accreditation status of transferring laboratories with either Clinical Pathology Accreditation or United Kingdom Accreditation Services.
