§ Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he proposes to make any changes in the level of funding for kidney and other transplants.
§ Mrs. Currie
Funding levels for kidney transplantation are for health authorities to determine within their overall cash allocations. The protected funding in 1986–87 for heart and liver transplantation, which falls within the supra-regional services arrangements, was £5.023 million. An additional £2.315 million, a real term increase in total revenue funding of 44 per cent., has been allocated to these services in 1987–88.
