Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what estimate he has made, for each of the new NHS trust areas in Wales, of the number of posts which have been terminated in executive and directorate structures as a direct result of the recent reorganisation of the health service in Wales; and if he will make a statement. [84727]

Mr. Jon Owen Jones

Across the new NHS trusts in Wales the number of senior managerial posts has so far been reduced by a total of 80, as follows:

NHS Trusts Senior managerial posts
Gwent Healthcare NHS Trust 12
Pontypridd and Rhondda NHS Trust 9
University Hospital of Wales and Llandough
Hospital NHS Trust 5
Cardiff and District Community NHS Trust 4
Swansea NHS Trust 15
Bro Morgannwg NHS Trust 12
Carmarthenshire NHS Trust 5
North West Wales NHS Trust 4
Conwy and Denbighshire NHS Trust 5
North East Wales NHS Trust 9

Further reductions in managerial and administrative posts are expected to take place throughout the year.

Following the transfer of functions, this issue will be a matter for the National Assembly.
