(1) It is impossible to accurately map work force figures to geographical areas. The organisations listed cover the parliamentary constituencies of Central Suffolk and North Ipswich, West Suffolk and South Suffolk.

(2) Figures include bank nurses. The number of qualified bank nurses reported by Ipswich Hospitals NHS Trust increased by 450 between 2008 and 2009. On 1 October 2006 Ipswich PCT, Suffolk Coastal PCT, Central Suffolk PCT and Suffolk West PCT merged to form Suffolk Primary Care Trust. Figures for 2005 are an aggregate of these predecessor organisations.

Note:

Data Quality. The NHS Information Centre for health and social care seeks to minimise inaccuracies and the effect of missing and invalid data but responsibility for data accuracy lies with the organisations providing the data. Methods are continually being updated to improve data quality where changes impact on figures already published. This is assessed but unless it is significant at national level figures are not changed. Impact at detailed or local level is footnoted in relevant analyses.
