asked Her Majesty's Government:What progress has been made with the reconfiguration of NHS Trusts in Wales since publication of the finalised Project Plan in September 1997. [HL1664]

Since the issuing of the Project Plan in September 1997 health authorities in Wales have worked with their local NHS trusts to consult a wide range of interested parties on the optimal configuration of trusts for their areas. Proposals were submitted by the five health authorities at the beginning of February 1998. After considering these and other proposals, my honourable friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State (Win Griffiths) announced on 30 March 1998 a new shape of NHS trusts for Wales on which he intends to consult. Work is currently in hand on the production of consultation documents and he expects to be in a position to start formal consultation in June.
