asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the full establishment for nursing staff in Tayside health board; and what is the excess or deficit of nursing staff.
The funded establishment is 5,537 and nurses in post at the end of last month totalled 5,460–a deficit of 77. All figures are in terms of whole-time equivalents.
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many medical vacancies have occurred in each hospital in Tayside health board in the past year; how many have been filled; and how many have yet to be filled.
Information is collected centrally only on hospital medical posts unfilled for more than six months. For the year ending 30 September 1979, Tayside health board submitted a nil return.
