In 2014-15, North Cumbria University Hospital NHS Trust spent £19.125 million on employees under temporary and agency contracts.

The Department does not collect data on which specific area of employment the expenditure was incurred under. Therefore, in addition to payments made for medical staff, the figure of £19.125 million includes employees contracted for provision of other administration and support services.

Figures for 2015-16 will not be available until the Department of Health Annual Report and Accounts have been published.
