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.

  • How has the DHB managed this?
  • What was the DHB's average occupancy rate for March - September 2019 compared to the same period 2020? Can this please be broken down by month rather than lumped together.
  • Has this resulted in the DHB having to activate an action plan or escalation plan for wards? i.e. adults being put on children wards where there is more staffing etc.
