HC Deb 12 April 2002 vol 383 c676W
Mr. Chope

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many audiologists are employed in the NHS; and how many vacancies there are. [45979]

Mr. Hutton

Workforce and vacancy information collected annually by the Department does not identify audiologists. The Department is working with the professional bodies and National Health Service employers to develop an accurate picture of the entire healthcare scientist workforce.
