My interest is in the activity in Accident and Emergency Departments and I have a couple of questions regarding the application of technology in the A&E environment.  I anticipate that there are 3 teams that may need to input into the request: A&E, Informatics/data and IT systems.  If your Trust has multiple A&E sites, I would be grateful if a questionnaire could be completed for each site.

FOI 5281 Agency staffing

Published/updated: 27/07/17 09:28

 What was the agency spend within the last 12 months on temporary or interim staffing for agency nurses; and what percentage of that spend was with off framework agencies?

During the Financial Year (April-March) 2016/17 the Trust recorded the following expenditure on Agency Nursing: £9,523,997.25

We used on average for 2016/17 a total WTE (whole time equivalent) of 1,845 agency staff. Total nursing staff for the same year period was an average WTE (whole time equivalent) of 61,646

The Trust does hold the information you have requested in relation the percentage of spend, however we estimate that compliance with your request would exceed the appropriate costs limit under section 12 of the Freedom of information Act 2000. This is currently £450. The appropriate limit would be exceeded if it would require more than 18 hours work. In order to provide this information the finance department would need to manually review records. This would take longer than the 18 hours limit.
