To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he expects the planned external review of the implementation of the National Service Framework for Coronary Heart Disease to be completed; and if he will make a statement. (270043)

The Department is commissioning an external review of the implementation and delivery of the National Service Framework for Coronary Heart Disease. In addition to this, the Department will also undertake an analysis to look at how patient expectation and need, technology and working practices are likely to affect future demand and patterns of service provision. We will then feed our findings into the discussions of the National Quality Board, which has been set up to oversee the priorities for the service in the future.

A completion date has not yet been set.
