Skipton Fund

Volume 447: debated on Tuesday 20 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether (a) a panel has been appointed to hear appeals to the Skipton Fund and (b) a timetable has been set for the commencement of appeals to the Skipton Fund; and if she will make a statement. (78589)

The NHS Appointment Commission is undertaking the recruitment of the chair and members of the Skipton Fund appeal panel and interviews have been arranged for late June 2006. Once the necessary appointments have been made, the Skipton Fund, who provide the secretariat for the appeals panel, will organise all necessary meetings of the panel and prepare cases to be considered by the panel at the earliest convenience.
