The number of responses to consultations conducted by the Department is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

The number of responses to consultations varies greatly. For example, there were 34 responses to the consultation on 'Implementation of European Directive 2005/36/EC, for Health and Social Care professions in the United Kingdom'. There were more than 41,000 responses to the "Your Health, Your care, Your say" initiative.
