Workforce information for a range of Independent Healthcare Providers (IHP) - this was previously part of the Healthcare Workforce Statistics publication but is now a separate publication in its own right.

These experimental statistics relate to the workforce directly employed in a range of IHP organisations in England as at 31 March and 30 September each year from September 2015.

The information provided for the IHP Workforce does not represent the entire workforce employed across the whole of this sector and does not only show the staff providing NHS commissioned services.

From data published as at 31 March 2019, the publication includes figures for individual organisations. For those IHPs whose data is extracted from the ESR, the individual organisations are identified, for those organisations which submit their data directly via the wMDSCV the publication does not reveal the identity of the individual organisations as per the current agreement with the data submitters. Publishing data in this way begins to give a more detailed breakdown of the data NHS Digital holds to increase its utility. This inclusion to the publication will be ongoing for future publications, and is intended to be expanded upon in future, though not for past time series data provided in submissions prior to March 2019.

Key Facts

  • As at 30 September 2019 there were 55,261 FTE staff directly employed in a range of IHP organisations in England.
