HC Deb 08 March 1991 vol 187 c320W
Mr. Rooker

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many occupational therapists are employed by local authority social services departments in England; and what is the current vacancy rate.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

At 30 September 1989 the number of qualified occupational therapists employed in social services departments in England was 1,305 in whole-time equivalent (wte) terms. Of these, 65 staff (wte) were employed in capacities other than that of occupational therapist, for example, senior management.

Information on the numbers of vacancies for occupational therapists in social services departments is not collected centrally.
