Don Touhig MP, Islwyn voted with the majority (Teller for the Ayes).

That the following provisions shall apply to the Health and Social Care Bill:
2. Proceedings in the Standing Committee shall (so far as not previously concluded) be brought to a conclusion on Thursday 8th February 2001.
However, we would like clarification on whether or not information on disqualified doctors is automatically referred to the Family Health Services Appeals Authority . . . or is it only when a health care worker appeals against their disqualification that the FHSAA is notified? This is particularly relevant to locums as due to the transitory nature of this work they frequently move between Health Authorities. It is important that if one Health Authority removes a GP or locum from the list that other Health Authorities are informed.
there is a need for more information about how these pilots will operate and about the measures that will be put in place to safeguard the interests of patients and the public. For example, what will be the exact status of the pharmaceutical pilots--if they are not NHS bodies will they be governed by the Care Standards Act?
We also require clarification about patients' right to redress should they have problems with services provided by these pilots. It is our view that these pilots should be part of the NHS and patients should have access to the full range of rights provided by the NHS.
