NHS Workforce Statistics May 2016, Provisional Statistics


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.

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.

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 or 0300 303 5678
