Specialist locums spend in last five-years

DHB spend on locums for medical specialists every year for the past five years. i.e. General surgery, Orthopaedics, Enterology, Gynaecology, Ophthalmology, Urology, Cardiology.

Total locum spend year by year over this period, as well as the total internal staff spent on specialists for the same periods?

What is the size of the population the DHB serves and what is its annual operating budget? It would also be helpful to have explanations for higher (or lower) than usual locum costs for particular periods and whether or not the DHB offers limited services in respective departments.
