Volume 229: debated on Tuesday 27 July 1993

The text on this page has been created from Hansard archive content, it may contain typographical errors.

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the number of (a) female and (b) male midwifery staff, full-time and part-time, employed by each of the health boards in each of the past six years.

[holding answer 26 July 1993]: The available information is shown in the tables and includes staff working in hospitals and in the community; community staff whose combined duties cover midwifery are also included. Midwives on senior nurse or teaching grades cannot be identified by specialty and are therefore not included.
