HC Deb 12 March 2003 vol 401 c347W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether the NHS national database covers patients in Scotland. [102139]

Mr. Lammy

The national health service strategic tracing service and the NHS central register in Southport covers NHS patients in England and Wales. The Scottish NHS has a separate central register for NHS patients in Scotland. The two registers co-operate fully to ensure that patients moving between the countries are not lost from sight and that users see a seamless service.
