NHS Vacancy Statistics (and previous NHS Vacancies Survey)
Due to current resource constraints and organisational changes at NHS Digital, the scope of the last two publications in the series (released at the end of November 2019 and February 2020) were considerably reduced and 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 England and NHS Improvement management information only
During this pause, NHS Digital have been working on making improvements to the publication, primarily focusing on working with TRAC to incorporate their data into the compendium publication; exploring what more can be done with data from ESR; and improving the NHS Jobs data tables.
The new enhanced publication was due to go live for the first time in May 2020, but as a result of the coronavirus illness (COVID-19), these improvements are having to be delayed.
NHS Digital will therefore continue with the reduced scope publication in May 2020, as per the last two quarters, and look forward to releasing the new enhanced publication later in the year.
To help with the development of this publication, feedback is continually welcomed and can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading ‘NHS Vacancy Statistics publication feedback’.
