Defence Medical Services: Manpower

Volume 497: debated on Wednesday 21 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence (1) what the current shortfall is of each rank of medical personnel available for active service; and if he will make a statement; (291717)

(2) what the (a) inflow and (b) outflow rates were of medical personnel in each of the three services in each of the last five years.

Manning statistics for the Defence Medical Services are updated twice a year, in April and October. The October 2009 figures are currently being collated, and verified figures should be available by the end of November. I will place these figures in the Library of the House.
