Rt Hon Lord Lilley

     Peter Lilley, MP for Hitchin and Harpenden, is to present a Ten Minute Rule
    Bill in the House of Commons on Patient Choice in the NHS this Wednesday
    (30th October).

    Peter Lilley said:

    “This Bill will seek to restore patients‘ rights to choose which NHS
    hospital they would like to be treated at. This was abolished by the
    Government in 1999. Now patients must go to the hospital with which the
    local NHS bureaucracy has a contract.

    “My Bill will aim to give patients greater information so that they can make
    an informed choice about the hospital they want to go to. I want to see
    taxpayers money following patient choice so that hospitals are rewarded with
    resources to treat the patients they attract.”
