Furthermore, I request monthly data for the period April 2015 to March 2018 on the number of hours worked by bank staff and the associated expenditure for bank staff, with bank being defined as an in-house bank that provides a shift directly or an outsourced bank such as NHS Professionals that provides a shift directly.
