Health Trainers

Volume 474: debated on Thursday 3 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 4 March 2008, Official Report, column 2383W, on health trainers, how many health trainers there were in (a) each primary care trust and (b) the NHS in September 2006. (194738)

In September 2006, figures for health trainers were not collected. The programme for 2006-07 was been rolled out across spearhead primary care trusts (PCTs) with 2007-08 seeing the programme expanded to all PCTs.

We do, however, have an overall figure of health trainers recruited to the programme at that time, which stands at approximately 900. The vast majority of those were sited in spearhead PCTs.
