Health and Social Care Bill Risk Register — 22 Feb 2012 at 18:48
The majority of MPs voted against publication of the risk register associated with the Health and Social Care Bill.
The motion voted on was:
- That this House
- calls on the Government to respect the ruling by the Information Commissioner and to publish the risk register associated with the Health and Social Care Bill in order to ensure that it informs public and parliamentary debate.
This motion appears to relate to the document also known as the "NHS transition risk register". The content of the NHS transition risk register has been described in an article from the Guardian:
- "The edited risk register describes each of the nine areas of concern identified by health officials and discussed with ministers, including problems of co-ordinating the planning and implementation of the complex network of old NHS organisations being phased out and new bodies being created, such as Primary Care Trusts being replaced by GP commissioning groups. Other issues covered are the risk of damaging staff morale and the danger that widespread opposition will lead to the bill being delayed from becoming law while the reforms are already under way."
