To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many NHS posts have been vacant for more than three months at (a) West Hertfordshire Primary Care Trust and (b) South West Hertfordshire Acute Hospital Trust. (210134)

The latest available information shows the position at 31 March 2007.

There is no South West Hertfordshire Acute Hospital Trust and so information has been provided for West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust, which is based in the hon. Member's constituency.
