Health Services: Wales

Volume 458: debated on Monday 19 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) how many Welsh patients were treated in NHS hospitals in England in 2006, broken down by (a) type of treatment and (b) hospital; and how much funding was received by each hospital in payment by the Welsh Assembly Government, broken down by type of treatment; (119009)

(2) how many patients from Wales have been treated in English hospitals as a result of the Welsh Assembly Government's second offer scheme, broken down by (a) health authority area and (b) hospital in which treatment was provided;

(3) how much each English health authority has received in payment under the Welsh Assembly Government's second offer scheme since its inception;

(4) what estimate she has made of the cost of follow-up treatment required for patients treated at Weston-super- Mare Hospital under the Welsh Assembly Government's second offer scheme who have been recalled following knee surgery; and how the costs of the follow-up treatment will be met.

This is a matter for the National Assembly for Wales and I have asked the Health Minister to write to the hon. Member directly.
