HC Deb 13 February 2004 vol 418 c302W
Mr. Norman

To ask the Secretary of State for Health which of the European Working Time Directive pilot sites have a full complement of(a) senior specialist nurses and (b) nurse practitioners to cover doctors in training. [153707]

Mr. Hutton

The Working Time Directive (WTD) pilot sites are managed by the Modernisation Agency (MA) as part of the wider work on WTD implementation. I understand from the MA that it is not possible to say what constitutes a full complement of these nurses, as each trust and service will have specific needs to be determined locally.
