HC Deb 16 February 1990 vol 167 c456W
Mr. Meale

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will list(a) by district and (b) by region all medical consultants employed, whole and part time, together with their specialty.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

The information is not held centrally in the form required. Contracts for consultants in non-teaching district health authorities are held by the regional health authorities. Information at district level is therefore available only for consultants employed by teaching districts. This is given in the table which has been placed in the Library. The regional totals in the table include staff in all districts, teaching and non-teaching.
