§ Mr. Lilley
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many staff were employed in National Health Service hospitals at the end of March; and what was the breakdown between the following categories: medical and dental, nurses and midwives, professional and technical, administrative and clerical and domestic and ancillary.
§ Mr. John Patten
I regret that the information requested for staff in NHS hospitals in England, separate from those working in the community, is not available. However, I have placed in the Library a table showing total NHS staff directly employed at 31 March 1984 in England split into staff groups as required.
