The table shows expenditure by the West Yorkshire Metropolitan Ambulance Service National Health Service Trust (WYMAS) on NHS qualified nursing, midwifery and health visiting staff and non NHS nursing, midwifery and health visiting staff, for the years 2001–02 to 2003–04.

(£)
Qualified NHS nursing, midwifery and health visiting staff Non-NHS nursing, midwifery and health visiting staff
2001–02 13,599,638 12,460,320
2002–03 22,972,181 38,150,587
2003–04 26,596,911 21,660,434

Notes:

1.The Department collects expenditure information on NHS and non-NHS staff by NHS trusts. Non-NHS staff expenditure figures include all agency staff and any other staff not directly employed by the trusts.

2.WYMAS was a lead organisation for NHS Professionals. The non-NHS figures shown in the table relate to expenditure on NHS professionals. These figures have not been used in previous parliamentary responses (to avoid double counting) due to the fact that other NHS trusts included the expenditure in their financial returns when reporting NHS professionals that they employed via WYMAS.
