To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many whole time equivalent (a) medical consultants, (b) other doctors, (c) nurses and midwives and (d) other health professionals were employed at York Hospital in 1997, excluding posts subsequently transferred to York Primary Care Trust; and how many were employed in each category on the most recent date for which figures are available. (322107)

The data are not available in the format requested. The following table shows national health service staff at the York Hospitals NHS Trust by main staff group as at 30 September each specified year. The figures quoted for 1997 include posts that subsequently transferred to Selby and York Primary Care Trust (PCT), as these cannot be separately identified.

Notes:

1. Full-time equivalent figures are rounded to the nearest whole number.

2. Data Quality

Workforce statistics are compiled from data sent by more than 300 NHS trusts and PCTs in England. The NHS Information Centre for health and social care liaises closely with these organisations to encourage submission of complete and valid data and seeks to minimise inaccuracies and the effect of missing and invalid data. Processing methods and procedures are continually being updated to improve data quality. Where this happens any impact on figures already published will be assessed but unless this is significant at national level they will not be changed. Where there is impact only at detailed or local level this will be footnoted in relevant analyses.
