asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many occupational therapists were in post in each health board area as at 30 September 1984; and if, for each area, he will give figures to show the population per therapist ratio.
The whole-time equivalent number of occupational therapists in post in each health board area at 30 September 1984 and the population per therapist ratio is shown in the table. The figures given relate to occupational therapists employed by health boards and take no account of those who are employed by local authorities but who also work in health related fields.
|Health Board||Number of occupational therapists whole-time equivalent||Ratio per head of population|
|Argyll and Clyde||11·2||1:39996|
|Ayrshire and Arran||11·5||1:32676|
|Dumfries and Galloway||14·1||1:10367|
