Chart showing breakdown of disability status (employee numbers)
NHS Digital has been awarded level 2 of the Disability Confident scheme accreditation. We welcome applications from job seekers and support employees with a disability status. All candidates with a disabled status meeting the minimum criteria for a post are guaranteed an interview.
We have been involved in a range of recent events held by the Disability Confident scheme and are reviewing suggestions to increase the number of applications from disabled candidates.
Our data shows that 5% of employees undertaking non-mandatory training have declared a disability and 74% have described themselves as not disabled - this is in line with the workforce profile.
We also found that:
- 15% of disability statuses of employees undertaking non-mandatory training are not disclosed, 6% of disability statuses are unknown or unmatched
- employees declaring a disability made up 12% of employee relations cases and 61% described themselves as not disabled
- 4% of leavers were employees who have declared a disability and 69% have described themselves as not disabled, which is in line with the current workforce profile - 23% of leavers chose not to declare their disability status and 4% of leavers had an unknown disability status
