HC Deb 15 March 1994 vol 239 cc557-8W
Ms Jowell

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the numbers of (i) health visitors, (ii) school nurses, (iii) district nurses and (iv) community psychiatric nurses should be in London.

Mr. Sackville

The Department makes no recommendations as to local staffing levels in the groups listed. Decisions concerning staffing are the responsibility of local managers who, with advice from professional colleagues, are in the best position to consider the amount and type of work to be done, and therefore the work force they require.
