HC Deb 04 November 2003 vol 412 c597W
Mr. Burstow

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will list each local network provider awarded a contract by the Commission for Patient and Public Involvement in Health, the areas they have been awarded contracts for, and their registered office address; how many patient forums they are responsible for; which aspects of the service they have sub-contracted; and to whom they have sub-contracted. [134066]

Ms Rosie Winterton

[holding answer 27 October 2003]: A full list of local network providers, the area they cover and the patients' forums they support is available on the Commission for Patient and Public Involvement in Health's (CPPIH's) website at www.cppih.org. A copy of the relevant information has been placed in the Library. Local network providers have to seek approval from the CPPIH to sub contract the services for which they have been contracted to provide. No such requests have been made.
