Strategic Health Authorities

Volume 447: debated on Monday 5 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many strategic health authority (a) chief executives, (b) chairmen and (c) senior managers have (i) medical, (ii) dental, (iii) nursing and (iv) other qualifications and previous experience of working in the (A) private sector and (B) NHS. (71465)

Information in respect of chief executives and senior managers is not collected centrally. The NHS Appointments Commission is responsible for appointing the chairmen of NHS organisations, a number of whom are retired clinicians. I have asked the NHS Appointments Commission to write to the right hon. Gentleman direct with the information he seeks.
