Suffolk Primary Care Trust: Finance

Volume 498: debated on Wednesday 28 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much has been spent by Suffolk Primary Care Trust on salaries and wages for (a) general and senior managers, (b) nurses and midwives and (c) administrative and clerical staff in each year since its creation. (296169)

The following table shows data for 2002-03 to 2008-09, which are the only years for which this information is available by individual organisation. Suffolk Primary Care Trust (PCT) was reconfigured as part of the national restructuring process in October 2006. For 2005-06 and previous financial years, the figures in the table represent the sum of the relevant figures across the four predecessor PCTs—Suffolk Coastal PCT, Ipswich PCT, Central Suffolk PCT and Suffolk West PCT.

The figures provided are for total expenditure on staff and include social security costs, pension contributions and early retirement costs. It is not possible separately to identify salaries and wages. Redundancy costs are not included.

The figures for ‘Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting Staff’ and ‘Admin and Clerical Staff’ include non-NHS staff, e.g. staff employed via an employment agency.

Information is from the financial returns for NHS bodies. The data are not audited but are validated to the audited summarisation schedules.
