To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will place in the Library a copy of the consultation paper he has issued on simplifying the extra-contractual referral system; if he will list the consultees on this document; and if he will make a statement. [37608]

I have arranged for copies of the letters sent to the NHS in Wales explaining the proposals for streamlining aspects of the extra-contractual referral process to be placed in the Library. Guidance on other aspects of the process is being developed in partnership with health authorities, NHS trusts and GPs. This guidance is likely to be issued in the autumn.
