§ Baroness Jeger
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Further to their Answer of 23rd February (H.L. Deb., col. WA 76), what was the total cost of management and administration in the NHS including headquarters and costs outside headquarters, as a percentage of the total cost of the NHS, in 1993–94 compared with 1987–88.
§ Baroness Cumberlege
Expenditure on staff undertaking management and administration duties outside headquarters is part of operational expenditure38WA and separate information is not available centrally. However, management, defined as those staff on general and senior managers' terms and conditions, represents only 2.6 per cent. of the total National Health Service workforce and 3.6 per cent. of the total NHS paybill.
