The numbers employed in the health service have been reduced from over 111,000 at end-December 2008 to 101,506 at end-December 2012. In addition, salary scales for all health service grades have been reduced in line with Government decisions.

I have asked the HSE to respond directly to the Deputy with the detailed information requested.
