Armed Forces: Health Services

Volume 505: debated on Friday 5 February 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he decided to hold a review of out-of-hours primary care for service personnel; what the terms of reference are of that review; and when it will be concluded. (316071)

The review was initiated by the Assistant Chief of the Defence Staff for Health in January 2010. It will look at the current provision of out-of-hours primary care cover for service personnel, and consider other options for providing a service that is both efficient and cost-effective, while fully meeting the needs of patients. An interim report is due in March 2010, from which further plans will be made.
