Independent Medical Expert Group: Triennial Review: 24th March 2015

The Minister of State, Ministry of Defence (Anna Soubry)
I am today announcing the start of the triennial review of the Independent Medical Expert Group. Triennial reviews are part of the Government’s commitment to ensuring that non-departmental public bodies continue to have regular independent challenge.

The review will examine whether there is a continuing need for the Independent Medical Expert Group’s function and its form, and whether it should continue to exist at arm’s length from Government. Should the review conclude there is a continuing need for the body, it will go on to examine whether the body’s control and governance arrangements continue to meet the recognised principles of good corporate governance.​

The House will be informed of the outcome of the review, which is expected to be completed in the summer.
