NHS Staff

Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 24 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will estimate the total number of NHS staff working in the (a) acute and (b) community sectors in each year since 1997 by (i) headcount and (ii) full-time equivalent. (114984)

It is not possible to divide the total number of national health service staff between the acute and community sectors as some staff groups overlap in both sectors.

The non-medical workforce census does not show if staff are hospital or community based.
