§ Mrs. Faith
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what progress has been made in the review of present arrangements for designating some health authorities as teaching authorities as referred to in paragraph 35 of his Department's circular HC(80)8.
§ Dr. Vaughan
On 19 November, I distributed a discussion paper to health and teaching interests. It invites comments to be sent to the Department by the end of the year on a number of aspects of medical teaching in the NHS, including teaching designation, and we shall reach conclusions in the light of views expressed. A copy of the paper "Medical Teaching in the NHS", HN(80)40, has been placed in the Library and copies are available to hon. Members in the Vote Office.
