Dear Barbara

Thank you for the information. Could I just check some of the figures in the average salary section. Some look very high and some very low ie:
Pharmacists - £9,741
Temporary Physiotherapists - £214,734
Temporary SALT - £66,885

If you could confirm if these are correct or send the amendments it would be appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Carl Tinker

Dear Mr Tinker

Thank you for your e-mail below.

Please accept my apologies as I sent you the total figure and not the average figure. The information should have been as follows:-

Pharmacists - £9,741 - this figure is correct as there was only one part time worker.
Temporary Physiotherapists - the average figure is £25,477.
Temporary Speech and Language Therapists - the average figure is £21,153.

Apologies once again.

Kind regards
Barbara
