NHS Vacancy Statistics (and previous NHS Vacancies Survey)

Due to current resource constraints and organisational changes at NHS Digital, the Workforce Team are having to focus on priority areas of work whilst new and additional requests for work continue to grow. Therefore, during this period of change, the scope of the next two publications in the series (due for release at the end of November 2019 and February 2020) will be considerably reduced.

These upcoming publications will therefore be limited to include:

  • High-level Key Facts for NHS Jobs data
  • The standard CSV file for NHS Jobs data which normally accompanies the publication
  • A truncated Excel file containing NHS Improvement management information only

During this pause, NHS Digital will work on making improvements to the publication, primarily focusing on working with TRAC to incorporate their data into the compendium publication for the first time in May 2020; exploring what more can be done with data from ESR; and improving the NHS Jobs data tables.

To help with the development of this publication, feedback is continually welcomed and can be sent to: with the subject heading ‘NHS Vacancy Statistics publication feedback’.
