Mr. Weir: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many and what percentage of jobs in (a) her Department and (b) each (i) non-departmental public body, (ii) executive agency and (iii) other public body for which her Department is responsible are located in (A)England, excluding Greater London, and (B) Greater London. 
Jane Kennedy: The figures are published in table D of Civil Service Statistics, which covers permanent staff numbers (full time equivalent). This information is available at the following address on the Cabinet Office's statistics website at:www.civilservice.gov.uk/management_of_the_civil_service/statistics/index.asp.
The total number of staff employed by executive non-Departmental public bodies sponsored by the Department as at 31 March 2005 is recorded in table two of Public Bodies 2005, a copy of which is available in the Library and is also available on the Cabinet Office's website at www.knowledgenetwork.gov.uk/ndpb/ndpb.nsf. However, Public Bodies does not give the regional breakdowns sought and those data are not held by the Department. They could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
The number of staff employed in the Department's executive agencies as at 1 April 2004, including a regional analysis, is available in Civil Service Statistics 2004, published in February 2005. A copy is available in the Library and is also available on the Cabinet Office's website at: www.civilservice.gov.uk/management_of_the_ civil_service/statistics/civil_servicestatistics/index.asp and www.civilservice.gov.uk/management_of_the_civil_ service/statistics/contents_for_civil_service_statistics_ 2004_report/index.asp
Ms Rosie Winterton: The national service framework for diabetes states that there is emerging evidence to suggest that it may be clinically and cost effective to offer screening for diabetes to those sub-groups of the population at increased risk of developing the condition. The United Kingdom National Screening Committee considered screening for type two diabetes at its meeting on 29 November 2005 and I expect to receive its advice on the next steps shortly.
Mr. Byrne: Initial implementation of the national health service care records service (NHS CRS) began in the summer of 2004 with the introduction of a personal demographic service containing personal identity details of patients; access controls to ensure secure service system access via Smartcard; a messaging service with the standard messaging protocols; and a spine directory service containing reference file information. Over time each person's NHS care record will build into a comprehensive patient history with a summary of patient information available at the point of need anywhere in the NHS in England. The final phase of the NHS CRS, by 2010, will be the full integration of health and social care information systems across England.
A contract to the value of £620 million was awarded in 2003 from central expenditure for the creation of the national database of key information about patients' health and care, which is the core component of the NHS CRS. The contract covers on-going funding of core deliverables and the connection of existing systems to national applications. However, it does not include

all the costs of implementation at local level, such as training national health service staff or local change management costs, which are planned to be borne by individual NHS organisations out of baseline budgets.
Mr. Binley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many prescriptions were issued for emergency contraception in (a) Northampton primary care trust, (b) Daventry and South Northamptonshire primary care trust and (c) Northamptonshire Heartlands primary care trust, in the last 12 months. 
|Primary care trust||Number of prescriptions|
|Daventry and South Northamptonshire|
Emergency contraception is also available through community contraception clinics, and can be purchased 'over the counter' by those aged over 16. The Department does not hold data centrally on the latter.
Community contraceptive clinic services in these localities are provided by Northamptonshire Healthcare national health service trust. That trust reported prescribing hormonal post-coital contraceptives on 1,023 occasions in 200405.
Ms Rosie Winterton: The use of appropriate ethnic and other equality data is very important to the National Health Service. Without recording ethnicity, the NHS would not be able to check that its access and treatments are equitable to all communities.
Revised guidance on ethnicity monitoring of NHS patients and social care users was published in July 2005. This guidance applies to primary and secondary care settings and confirms the use of Office for National Statistics codes for ethnic groups as the NHS standard.
