To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services how many consultant urologists are working in each health authority in England and Wales.

Figures are not available for all district health authorities. Information about medical staff is collected by employing authorities, which, for consultants, means regional health authorities, district health authorities designated for teaching purposes, and special health authorities for the London postgraduate teaching hospitals in England, and district health authorities in Wales. Such information as is available is set out in the table.
