Mr. Gardiner

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many district nurses working for Parkside Community Health Trust who carry a clinical case load have been given discretionary award points under the recommendations of the pay review body in 1998. [125948]

Mr. Denham

In line with national guidance from National Health Service Executive, Parkside Health NHS Trust has developed guidelines for awarding discretionary points to its nursing and therapy staff. This was done in consultation with staff groups and their representatives. The trust has considered a total of 59 applications, of which 30 were successful. Of these, six applications came from district nurses, and two were given discretionary award points.
