New statistics show NHS staff sickness absence for coronavirus-related reasons
Notes for editors
- The data includes staff working for NHS Trusts, CCGs, NHS Support Organisations and Central Bodies in England. It does not cover staff in primary care, such as GP practices.
- The supplementary analysis shows changes that are being seen in absence data in relation to the NHS response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It covers differences observed between March and May 2020, during the initial response period.
- Additional coding was made available on the Electronic Staff Record for organisations to record against to show sickness absence related to coronavirus.
- Percentages in the supplementary analysis on this topic show absence rates for all sickness absence, absence rates for coronavirus-related sickness absence and the percentage of coronavirus related sickness absence as a percentage of all sickness absence.
