Notes:

1. The format of the collection has changed since 1997 where the time bands were collected in months.

2. Time bands of patients waiting are now collected in weeks.

3. The shortest waiting time is represented by the shortest time band collected and similarly the longest waiting time is represented by the longest time band collected.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many full-time equivalent (a) medical consultants, (b) other medical staff, (c) nurses and (d) other (i) professionally qualified clinical staff and (ii) staff were employed by York hospitals NHS trust, excluding those specialties and functions transferred to the primary care trust, in each year since 1992. (106453)

The information is not available in the format requested.

The following tables are based on the medical and dental and non-medical work force census returns for 1995-2005. As the table shows, it is impossible to arrive at a clean split of staff and services in the sense that one group ceases to exist in the trust and takes up residence in the primary care trust. The tables have been supplied to show how many staff, and their work areas are in the trust and the PCT.

2. The data are reported for the Trust and the PCT by staff group from 2001.
