This statistical bulletin relates to sickness absence rates for staff at NHS organisations on the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) between April and June 2014.
- Between April and June 2014 the average sickness absence rate for the NHS in England was 3.92%, an increase from the same period in 2013.
- The North West HEE region had the highest average sickness absence rate at 4.57%. North Central and East London HEE region had the lowest average at 3.15%, although Special Health Authorities and other statutory bodies would have had the lowest rate (3.05%) if classed as a region.
- Ambulance Staff were the staff group with the highest average sickness absence rate with an average of 6.41%. Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting Learners had the lowest average at 1.11%.
- Amongst types of organisation, Ambulance Trusts had the highest average sickness absence rate with an average of 5.98%. Clinical Commissioning Groups had the lowest average with a rate of 2.37%. Primary Care Trusts and Strategic Health Authorities have been excluded from this comparison as the majority were dissolved in April 2013, and the remaining few are remnants within ESR as a result of transition. However, the Primary Care Trusts are included in table 4. These organisations will be excluded from future Sickness Absence publications.
