HC Deb 28 February 2003 vol 400 c771W
Tim Loughton

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many paediatric nurses are employed by each hospital trust in England; and what the vacancy rates are in each case. [92538]

Mr. Hutton

As a result of organisational changes in April 2002, data reflecting the latest organisation structure are not currently available. The 2003 national health service vacancy survey will be conducted in March and the results will be available later this year. It is intended to publish staff in post data from the September 2002 NHS work force census, which reflects the latest structure, in April this year.
