This report shows monthly numbers of NHS Hospital and Community Health Services (HCHS) staff working in NHS Trusts and CCGs in England (excluding primary care staff). Data are available as headcount and full-time equivalents and for all months from 30 September 2009 onwards.
These data are an accurate summary of the validated data extracted from the NHS HR and Payroll system. Additional statistics on staff in NHS Trusts and CCGs and information for NHS Support Organisations and Central Bodies are published each:
September (showing June statistics)
December/January (showing September statistics)
March (showing December statistics)
June (showing March statistics)
Quarterly NHS Staff Earnings and monthly NHS Staff Sickness Absence reports and data relating to the General Practice workforce and the Independent Healthcare Provider workforce are also available via the Related Links below.
In the next quarterly release of data, September data published on January 6 2022, we intend to stop publishing the following CSV documents:
1. ‘HCHS staff in NHS Trusts and CCGs in England, Organisation and Job Type CSV’
These data are already available within the ‘HCHS staff in NHS Trusts and CCGs - Staff in Post summary tables’ on the tab ‘Source - Org, SG, grade, AoW’
2. ‘HCHS staff in NHS Support Organisations and Central Bodies in England, Organisation and Job Type CSV’
These data are already available within the ‘HCHS staff in NHS Support Orgs and Central Bodies’ on the tab ‘Source - Staff Grp, Grade, AoW’
Please let us know if this causes any inconvenience.
We welcome feedback on the methodology and tables within this publication. Please email us with your comments and suggestions, clearly stating Monthly HCHS Workforce as the subject heading, via firstname.lastname@example.org or 0300 303 5678.
