Question for Department of Health

UIN 212376, tabled on 28 October 2014

To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many locum GPs there are in (a) Walsall South constituency and (b) England.

Answered on

4 November 2014

This data is not held centrally. This is because each general practitioner practice provides their own service/staffing arrangements so the information could only be gathered by asking all the individual practices.

Neither Walsall Clinical Commissioning Group of the local NHS England Area Team have the locum numbers for the constituency (Walsall) and there is no national data available.

Named day
Named day questions only occur in the House of Commons. The MP tabling the question specifies the date on which they should receive an answer. MPs may not table more than five named day questions on a single day.
