|Calls to NHS Direct 0845 line from the Enfield PCT area|
Jeremy Wright: To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for Rochford and Southend East of 6 October 2008, Official Report, column 444W, on medical records: data protection, when the Information Commissioner made the statement on new NHS systems referred to in the answer; and if he will publish in full the document containing the statement. 
Mr. Bradshaw: The views attributed to the Information Commissioner in the answer are taken from two sources. The first is the second paragraph of the Information Commissioners response to the consultation, launched in October 2002, on the Departments Information for Life confidentiality proposals. The other is a statement the Commissioner made in a document he published in January 2007 in the wake of inquiries he had received from people who had seen articles in the media relating to the introduction of electronic care records. The consultation response has been placed in the Library. The published statement is available from the Information Commissioners Office website at:
Mr. Scott: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much has been paid out by the NHS in compensation to patients in each of the last three years; and how much has been paid out in legal costs in connection with medical negligence compensation cases by each English hospital trust outside London in each of those years. 
On 18 November 2008, there were 164 registrations of national health service organisations in England with GS1. In most cases these are for individual
hospital sites, and in some cases individual departments within hospitals, as the number of items requiring coding in some large departments warrants an individual registration.
Ann Keen: The purchase of automated dispensing systems is an investment decision for local national health service organisations, and definitive figures are not held centrally. As of March 2008, the NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency was aware of approximately 75 automated dispensing systems in hospital pharmacy departments across the United Kingdom, of which seven are in Wales, and the remainder in England.
Norman Lamb: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate he has made of the number of patients involved in safety incidents in NHS organisations which (a) are and (b) are not members of GS1. 
Ann Keen: The most recently published data from the National Patient Safety Agency's (NS reporting and learning system (RLS) indicate that during the period April to June 2008, 276,839 incidents were submitted to the RLS from 377 national health service organisations in England and Wales. This information has already been placed in the Library and is also available on the NPSA's website at: www.npsa.nhs.uk/nrls/patient-safety-incident-data/quarterly-data-reports. Analysis to compare the numbers of incidents in organisations that are and are not registered with GS1 is not available currently.
Miss McIntosh: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many doctors per 100,000 residents there were in the area covered by the North Yorkshire and York Primary Care Trust in each year between 1997 and 2007. 
|General and personal medical services and hospital and community health services (HCHS)|
|Total specified organisations||North Yorkshire and York Primary Care Trust (PCT)||Selby and York PCT||Hambleton and Richmondshire PCT||Craven, Harrogate and Rural District PCT||Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale PCT|
|(1) Excludes medical hospital practitioners and medical clinical assistants, most of whom are general practitioners working part time in hospitals|
(2) These figures exclude HCHS Doctors that work in Hospital Trusts within the area
1. Prior to 2002 PCTs did not exist. Therefore it is not possible to map the trusts contained within the table back any further than this with any degree of accuracy.
2. North Yorkshire and York PCT was created on 1 October 2006 from a complete merger of Craven, Harrogate and Rural District PCT, Hambleton and Richmondshire PCT, Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale PCT and Selby and York PCT.
3. Data quality: Work force statistics are compiled from data sent by more than 300 national health service trusts and PCTs in England. The 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.

Miss McIntosh: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much was spent by North Yorkshire and York Primary Care Trust on salaries and wages for (a) general and senior managers, (b) nurses and midwives and (c) administrative and clerical staff in each year since its creation. 
1. North Yorkshire and York PCT was established on 1 October 2006 from four dissolving PCTs: Hambleton and Richmondshire PCT; Craven, Harrogate and Rural District PCT; Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale PCT; and Selby and York PCT.
2. The 2006-07 figures include data for the four former PCTs for the first six months of the financial year plus North Yorkshire and York PCT for the second half of the year and may be distorted due to the merger. It is not possible to split the data between the former PCTs and North Yorkshire and York PCT.
3. Data are from the 2006-07 and 2007-08 financial returns for North Yorkshire and York PCT. These data are not audited but are validated to the audited financial monitoring and accounts forms.
4. Data include salaries and wages, social security costs and pension contributions. It is not possible to separately identify salaries and wages for these groups of staff.
5. Figures include permanently employed staff and non-national health service (NHS) staff (eg agency staff).
