By reducing managers and administrators by over 21,100, we are freeing up extra resources for patient care—5.5 billion in this Parliament and 1.5 billion every year thereafter.

The number of national health service staff estimated to have been made redundant since May 2010 and subsequently, up until November 2013, re-employed by an NHS organisation on (a) a permanent basis is 2,570 and (b) a fixed term contract basis is 1,380.

These estimates are derived from unvalidated data from the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) Data Warehouse. Only redundancies from, and re-employment to, organisations that use ESR are included.
