I have checked with our HR department and unfortunately we cannot supply the information for the time period you have requested. This is because Yorkshire Ambulance Service uses the Electronic Staff Record system to manage our HR records. This came into existence in 2006. Yorkshire Ambulance Service was also formed on 1 July 2006 from the merger of three former trusts.
Prior to this date we have paper records and tracking back through these would have significant time and cost implications for the Trust. If you would be prepared to cover the cost of this work, however, please let me know and we can put the necessary arrangements in place.
With kind regards
