§ Mr. Mates
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many employees work for each regional health authority in England, excluding medical and dental staff working at district level; what is the total cost of these employees by each region; and how many districts there are in each region.
§ Mr. Newton
I am sorry that I cannot provide the information precisely as my hon. Friend wishes. In particular, it is not possible separately to identify medical and dental staff working at district level; all medical and dental staff have, therefore been excluded. Such information as is available centrally is shown in the table.87W
2 Includes General Managers.
Excludes Ambulance staff. These figures are derived from DHSS Annual census of non-medical manpower.
3 These figures are derived from annual accounts of Regional Health Authority's in England. Excludes expenditure on ambulance staff.
