Number of nurses registered with NMC from the Greater Manchester region

Carl Tinker made this Freedom of Information request to Nursing and Midwifery Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Nursing and Midwifery Council,

I have a couple of questions for you and would be obliged if you could answer them or point me in the right direction.
I would like to know how many nurses are registered with yourselves in the Greater Manchester region. If this information could also be provided for Cumbria and Lancashire that would be great but even if you can just provide the Greater manchester data that would be really appreciated.
Secondly, would you know anywhere that would detail the split of social workers between public and private sector.
As mentioned above, any information you can provide or any assitance you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Carl Tinker

Dear Mr Tinker,

I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information request below, in which you ask how many nurses are registered with the NMC in the Greater Manchester, Cumbria and Lancashire regions.

I can confirm the following number of nurses on the register for each of the regions below:

Manchester 27951
Cumbria 5270
Lancashire 18753

Please note that these figures are based on current home address postcodes as at 19 September 2011. A breakdown of the postcode prefixes included for each region is as follows:
