Carter Report

Volume 447: debated on Tuesday 20 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether she plans to issue a detailed response to Sir David Carter’s report and recommendations reviewing specialised services in the NHS; and if she will make a statement. (73305)

We support the approach in the independent report from the Review of Commissioning Arrangements for Specialised Services chaired by Sir David Carter. This comprehensive report contains a significant number of helpful proposals for improving the access to and quality of specialised services for all patients with rare conditions. We are considering the details of the report carefully and will take forward the recommendations in the Commissioning Framework, which we expect to publish in the summer.
