NHS Workforce Statistics - May 2016, Provisional statistics

Publication date: 09:30 August 24, 2016

Summary

This report shows provisional monthly figures for headcount and full-time equivalent of NHS Hospital and Community Health Service (HCHS) staff groups working in Trusts and CCGs in England (excluding primary care staff).
 
This data is an accurate summary of the validated data extracted from the NHS's HR and Payroll system. It has a provisional status as the data may change slightly over time where trusts make updates to their live operational systems.
 
The first of a series of quarterly reports was published on 26 July 2016 looking at the data for March 2016. It includes an additional set of statistics on staff in Trusts and CCGs and information for NHS Support Organisations and Central Bodies.
 
Going forward the quarterly analysis will be published each;
September (showing June statistics)
December (showing September statistics)
March (showing December statistics)
June (showing March statistics)
 
Note: CSV data is available for every month back to September 2009 within the March 2016 report. Due to their size they are broken down into several files. A link to the March 2016 data is given in the 'Related Links' section below.
