2 Staff holding two or more appointments whether with the same or different regions are counted only once. Differences in the sum of numbers of staff for all regions are due to the duplication of staff holding appointments in more than one region. Such staff are included separately in each region.

3 Prior to 1987 figures include staff in the grade of senior hospital medical-dental officer with allowance.
