To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services how many (a) nurses, (b) midwives, (c) doctors (d) professional medical staff, (e) administrative officers and (f) ancillary workers were employed by the Liverpool health authority in each of the last six years; and what was the average yearly pay for each group in each year.

[holding answer 11 January 1988]: Because of the 1982 National Health Service reorganisation, figures on a consistent basis are not held for the years prior to 1982. The figures for medical staff excludes senior registrars whose contracts are held by the regional health authority. The district health authority where those staff actually work cannot be identified separately. There will therefore be more doctors working in the Liverpool health authority than are accounted for in the table.Information on the pay of NHS staff in individual health authorities is not collected centrally and the hon. Member may care to contact the chairman of the Liverpool health authority for this information.

2 Includes permanent paid, honorary and locum staff. Excludes senior registrars—these staff have their contracts with the regional health authority.

3 Includes agency staff.

4 On 1 April 1984 operating department assistants transferred from ancillary to professionsl and technical staff group. Figures have not been adjusted to take account of this change.
