NHS: Working hours

Volume 476: debated on Thursday 22 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for South Cambridgeshire (Mr. Lansley) of 29 October 2007, Official Report, column 1044W, on the NHS: working hours, when (a) each pilot will conclude and (b) the report of each pilot will be published. (206649)

Information has been placed in the Library, which outlines when the pilots will be completed. The pilot reports will be published shortly afterwards.

NHS National Workforce Projects were commissioned by the Department to support national health service trusts with implementation of the European working time directive for doctors in training. They recognise the need to ensure that pilot material is shared across the NHS at the earliest opportunity and share learning throughout the life of the projects.
