Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 8 February 2019

To ask the Scottish Government how many hospital porters vacancies have been advertised by each NHS board on a (a) six-month and (b) other type of contract in each of the last three years, also broken down by how many posts (i) were filled and (ii) not filled each year.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 26 February 2019

The requested information is not held centrally as ISD do not collect vacancy data on support staff, including hospital porters.

Further notes:

  • Further information on the statistics, including information on how the data are collected and notes to aid interpretation, is given in the 'FAQs' section of the Workforce Statistics website at .
