To ask the Secretary of State for Health what discussions he has had with (a) the West Midlands Specialised Commissioning Group and (b) primary care trusts in the West Midlands on the implementation of the West Midlands Neuromuscular Strategy. (316910)

No discussions have been held with the West Midlands Specialised Commissioning Group or primary care trusts in the west midlands on the implementation of the West Midlands Neuromuscular Strategy.

It is the responsibility of primary care trusts to ensure the provision of services for neuromuscular dystrophy patients in that region, including access to national health service funded muscular dystrophy care advisers.
