Dear FOIRequests (NHS ORKNEY),

Thank you for your recent response.

With reference to question 5 (relating to bank numbers), unfortunately I was not looking for averages or for data from 2013-14. Please provide the total number of staff signed up to the bank for this financial year, and the amount that also are substantively employed by the board.

Thank you for your continued assistance.

Yours sincerely,

J Taylor
