Primary Care Trust Expenditure

Volume 455: debated on Monday 8 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much was spent by the primary care trusts in (a) Suffolk Coastal, (b) Central Suffolk, (c) Ipswich and (d) Suffolk East on (i) salaries and (ii) wages for (A) general and senior managers, (B) nurses and midwives and (C) administrative and clerical staff in each of the last four financial years. (102030)

Information is not available in the format requested. However, the following tables show staff cost expenditure; this includes Employers National Insurance contributions, Employers pension contributions and other pensions costs for Ipswich primary care trust (PCT), Suffolk Coastal PCT and Central Suffolk PCT, showing data for 2002-03 and 2004-05 as 2005-06 data are not yet available. This has been supplied because we do not hold data just on salaries and wages centrally.

Suffolk East, Central Suffolk and Ipswich PCTs were all established on 1 April 2002 and the recruitment to management posts was a gradual one resulting in less than half of the established posts being filled at the end of the financial year for 2002-03. The recruitment process continued throughout 2003-04 and it was not until 2004-05 that the PCTs’ full management structures were fully established.

The rise in costs to 2004-05 was due to a change in the numbers used for population. Until 2004-05 the PCTs used weighted head of general practitioner registered population, in 2004-05 we were advised to use the weighted population count as per the Office of National Statistics census.

There is also an inflationary element in the costs of 3.2 per cent. per year.
