§ Mr. Edwin Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many physiotherapists are engaged at the latest available date by the Sheffield Regional Hospital Board; and how many vacancies exist at the present time.
§ Mr. Alison
The latest returns show that at 30th September, 1971, hospitals in the Sheffield Regional Hospital area employed the equivalent of 278½ full-time physiotherapists, including 41 employed by the Board of Governors of the United Sheffield Hospitals. No central record is maintained showing how many additional staff individual hospital authorities might wish to employ.
