No estimate has been made of the number of national health service doctors and NHS nurses who have left their employment with between two and five years' experience in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 to date.

The primary source of NHS work force information is the electronic staff record (ESR) Data Warehouse.

However, the ESR Data Warehouse does not hold a robust record of employees' experience.
