This report shows provisional monthly figures for headcount and full-time equivalent of NHS Hospital and Community Health Service (HCHS) staff groups working in Trusts and CCGs in England (excluding primary care staff).


This data is an accurate summary of the validated data extracted from the NHS's HR and Payroll system. It has a provisional status as the data may change slightly over time where trusts make updates to their live operational systems.


The first of a series of quarterly reports will be published on 26th July 2016 looking at the data for March 2016. It will include an additional set of statistics on staff in Trusts and CCGs.


Going forward this quarterly analysis will be published each;

September (showing June statistics)
December (showing September statistics)
March (showing December statistics)
June (showing March statistics)


Note: CSV data is now available for every month back to September 2009. Due to their size they are broken down into several files which are available below.
