NHS Foundation Trusts
Tim Loughton (Shadow Minister (Children), Health; East Worthing and Shoreham, Conservative)
To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many of her Department's staff have been (a) recruited by and (b) seconded to designated foundation trust hospitals.
Ivan Lewis (Parliamentary Under-Secretary, Department of Health; Bury South, Labour)
We do not record any information relating to an individual's future employer when they leave the Department. This information can be provided only at disproportionate cost.
There are currently six staff from the Department on secondment to foundation trust hospitals across England. In addition, we have 10 staff seconded to strategic health authorities (SHA). However, we do not maintain records of previous secondments to either foundation trusts or SHAs.
