NHS: Procurement

Volume 508: debated on Wednesday 24 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will place in the Library a copy of each piece of written advice he has received from the Co-operation and Competition Panel on the preferred provider policy for the NHS. (321546)

We have engaged extensively with the Cooperation and Competition Panel (CCP) in the development of guidance setting out the implications of the preferred provider policy. However, the Department does not normally disclose advice on policy guidance that is yet to be approved by Ministers. We will consider publishing details of the CCP's advice following publication of any guidance.
