To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what arrangements his Department has put in place for NHS provision in England for patients residing in Wales.
11 January 2017
The National Health Service in Wales is responsible for arranging health care for people resident in Wales, and is accountable, through Welsh Ministers, to the National Assembly for Wales. Welsh NHS bodies are able to commission English providers to provide services for people resident in Wales. Any such arrangements are agreed between the bodies concerned, rather than put in place by the Secretary of State.
