The information requested is not collected centrally. The Department of Health holds information on the number of training places for physiotherapy, but not the number who complete training. Information on the number of training places for physiotherapists in each of the last six years is shown in the table.

Training Commissions for Physiotherapy
1996–97 1,093
1997–98 1,204
1998–99 1,344
1999–2000 1,346
2000–01 1,473
2001–02 1,780

Between 1997–98 and 2001–02, the number of training places for physiotherapists has increased by 580. This represents a 48 per cent. increase.
