Primary Care Trusts: Vacancies

Volume 476: debated on Thursday 22 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what proportion of London primary care trusts have a vacancy for the position of Director of Public Health; (197115)

(2) what proportion of London primary care trusts have a vacancy for the post of Finance Director.

This requested information is not held centrally. It is for local national health service organisations to ensure they have the staff they need to provide services to their local communities.

I understand that London strategic health authority (SHA) has established a training programme to develop senior managers, including potential future directors of public health. The hon. Member may therefore wish to raise this matter directly with the chief executive of London SHA.
