8 Jan 2007 : Column 71Wcontinued
Mr. Hayes: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many patients have died while on waiting lists for treatment in the last 12 months, excluding causes of death not related to the condition giving rise to the treatment. 
Andy Burnham: This information is not collected centrally.
Mr. Stephen O'Brien: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will take steps to inform patients of the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust whose waiting times have been extended by the manipulation of waiting time figures of the options for redress available to them. 
Andy Burnham: It is for the local primary care trust (PCT) and the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust to ensure that adequate systems for redress are available to patients disadvantaged by the recent waiting list problems at the trust.
All patients formerly on the suspended list have now either been appropriately removed from the list, treated, or given a date to come in for treatment, and the expectation is that all patients will have been seen by the beginning of March.
Mike Penning: To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will refer the reconfiguration of hospital services by West Hertfordshire Hospital Trust to the independent reconfiguration panel; and if she will make a statement. 
Mr. Ivan Lewis: It is for local authorities overview and scrutiny committees (OSCs) to consider proposals for service change, as part of the consultation process. OSCs have the power to refer any proposal to the Secretary of State if they believe the proposal is not in the interests of the health service or if consultation has been inadequate. Should this happen, the Secretary of State would consider seeking the advice of the independent reconfiguration panel before a final decision was made.
Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the (a) average and (b) maximum waiting time for (i) in-patient and (ii) day case admissions was at York Hospitals NHS Trust in each year since 1997-98. 
Andy Burnham: The information requested is in the tables.

1. The format of the collection has changed since 1997 where the time bands were collected in months.
2. Time bands of patients waiting are now collected in weeks.
3. The shortest waiting time is represented by the shortest time band collected and similarly the longest waiting time is represented by the longest time band collected.

Hugh Bayley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many full-time equivalent (a) medical consultants, (b) other medical staff, (c) nurses and (d) other (i) professionally qualified clinical staff and (ii) staff were employed by York hospitals NHS trust, excluding those specialties and functions transferred to the primary care trust, in each year since 1992. 
Ms Rosie Winterton: The information is not available in the format requested.
The following tables are based on the medical and dental and non-medical work force census returns for 1995-2005. As the table shows, it is impossible to arrive at a clean split of staff and services in the sense that one group ceases to exist in the trust and takes up residence in the primary care trust. The tables have been supplied to show how many staff, and their work areas are in the trust and the PCT.

1. Data is available for the Selby and York PCT from 2001. Some specialties and functions that were carried out by the York hospitals trust were probably transferred to the PCT at this time.
2. The data are reported for the Trust and the PCT by staff group from 2001.
