Summary

This report shows provisional monthly numbers of NHS Hospital and Community Health Service (HCHS) staff groups working in Trusts and CCGs in England (excluding primary care staff). Data is available as headcount and full-time equivalents.
 
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.
 
In addition to the regular monthly reports there are a series of quarterly reports (first published on 26 July 2016 looking at the data for March 2016) which include statistics on staff in Trusts and CCGs and information for NHS Support Organisations and Central Bodies. 

The quarterly analysis will be published each;
September (showing June statistics)
December (showing September statistics)
March (showing December statistics)
June (showing March statistics).

Note: From March 2017 these quarterly reports will include statistics on the nationality of staff (previously published every six months) showing quarterly figures from September 2015 onwards.

CSV data is available for every month back to September 2009 within the March 2016 report. Due to their size they are broken down into several files. A link to the March 2016 data is given in the 'Related Links' section below.

Please note, additional healthcare workforce data relating to GPs and independent sector workforce are also available (for March 2016), links to this data are available below. Also published at the same time as this report is provisional GP data as at September 2016, a link to this data is provided below.
