§ Helen Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate he has made of the percentage of NHS trusts which undertake organisational stress audits; and what plans he has to issue guidance to trusts on the introduction of such audits. 
§ Mr. Milburn
[holding answer 29 October 1998]: Information is not collected centrally on the percentage of trusts which undertake organisational stress audits. The National Health Service Executive has issued guidance to all NHS trusts and health authorities on managing organisational stress through its health at work in the NHS project and is piloting work based on this guidance at four trusts.
