HC Deb 15 September 2004 vol 424 c1644W
Mr. Lansley

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what mechanism has been put in place to enable the smooth transfer of a general practitioner transferring from one primary care trust's performers' list to another. [188000]

Mr. Hutton

The mechanism by which a general practitioner moves from one primary care trust's primary medical performers list to another is specified in regulations 17(3) and (4) of the NHS (Performers Lists) Regulations 2004 (SI 2004/585). Information about operation of medical performers lists is available on the Department's website at: http://www.dh.gov.uk/ PolicyAndGuidance/OrganisationPolicy/PrimaryCare/ ManagementPrimaryCarePractitioners/fs/en
