HL Deb 25 June 2003 vol 650 cc21-2WA
Lord Laird

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What steps they have taken in the past 12 months to reduce the waiting list for paediatric renal isotope scans in Northern Ireland; whether all possible facilities are currently in use; and, if not, why. [HL3183]

Lord Williams of Mostyn

Extra funding has recently been made available to provide for the operation of all renal isotope scanning facilities in Northern Ireland. This will improve waiting times for children who require this important service.
