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.
