1. The services of how many podiatrists across all podiatry services were engaged by your trust in each of the following fiscal years 1) 2013-14; 2) 2014-15; 3) 2015-16; 4) Budgeted for 2016-17; all in (i) Working Time Equivalent and (ii) Headcount format
Podiatry services are outsourced to a 3rd party provider, therefore this data is not held by Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RSCH).

RSCH would not hold information in relation to referrals made from NHS to private podiatric services. The referral would be patient choice.
