Volume 460: debated on Thursday 24 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much funding was allocated to the NHS Careers service in each year since 1999-2000; and how many people the service employed in each year. (135890)

Information on funding allocated to the NHS Careers service is available for each year starting from 2002. NHS Careers services range from a careers advice line to a careers website to support recruitment to the national health service. The breakdown of funding given in the following table is for the different aspects of NHS Careers service and includes costs for staffing. However, to identify costs of staffing separately would be available only at disproportionate costs.
