Publication, Part of

NHS Vacancy Statistics England, February 2015 - June 2019, Provisional Experimental Statistics

Experimental statistics, Official statistics


This is the latest provisional experimental publication of NHS vacancy statistics created from administrative data related to published vacancy adverts obtained from NHS Jobs, the main recruitment website for the NHS.

The statistics referred to in this document and the accompanying tables are exploratory and provide information on the administrative data available from NHS Jobs as much as on the recruitment of staff. This publication provides figures which are an insight to recruitment in the NHS but which should be treated with caution, though the expanded time series now allows users to consider relative changes over time.

This publication also includes management information related to vacancies and vacancy rates within the NHS which have been collected and published by NHS Improvement. This makes it a compendium publication. To align with the publication schedule for the NHS Improvement vacancy related data, NHS Digital have brought the publication date forward and made this NHS Vacancy Statistics publication quarterly.
