To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 29 June 2011, Official Report, column 874W, on NHS: labour mobility, how many people have been made redundant by primary care trusts and subsequently re-employed within the NHS (a) directly and (b) on a temporary or contract basis since 1 January 2011.

Between 1 January 2011 and 31 March 2011, the estimated number of staff re-employed within the national health service on a permanent basis, having previously been made redundant from a primary care trust (PCT), is 30. During the same period, the estimated number of staff re-employed within the NHS on a fixed-term basis, having previously been made redundant from a PCT, is 20.

Of the 30 re-employed on a permanent basis, 15 were made redundant during January 2010 to December 2010, and 15 were made redundant during January 2011 to March 2011.

Of the 20 re-employed on a fixed-term basis, 15 were made redundant during January 2010 to December 2010, and five were made redundant during January 2011 to March 2011.

These figures are based on the latest published redundancy information and are in addition to the 40 made redundant between 1 January 2010 and 31 December 2010 and re-employed during that year on a permanent basis, and the 20 re-employed on a fixed-term basis, given in my answer of 29 June 2011, Hansard, column 874W.

These estimates are based on data extracted from the Electronic Staff Record Data Warehouse and therefore do not include staff who may have been re-employed by general practices, Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust or Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
