Parkinson’s Disease: Hertfordshire

Volume 477: debated on Friday 13 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health which hospitals in Hertfordshire provide (a) Parkinson's disease and (b) paediatric diabetes specialist nurses. (210139)

This information is not collected centrally.

The annual national heath service work force census does not separately identify the number of Parkinson’s disease and paediatric diabetes specialist nurses from the rest of the nursing work force. Work force planning is a matter for local determination as local NHS organisations are best placed to assess the health care needs of their local population. The hon. Member may therefore wish to raise this matter locally.
