Notes:

1 Data is taken from the Non-Medical Workforce Census as at the 30 September in each specified year.

2 Data is taken from the Provisional Monthly Workforce Statistics as at the 30 June 2014. This is the latest data available.

Full time equivalent figures are rounded to the nearest whole number.

These statistics relate to the contracted positions within the Trust and may include those where the person assigned to the position is temporarily absent, for example on maternity leave.

Data Quality:

The Health and Social Care Information Centre seeks to minimise inaccuracies and the effect of missing and invalid data but responsibility for data accuracy lies with the organisations providing the data. Methods are continually being updated to improve data quality where changes impact on figures already published. This is assessed but unless it is significant at national level figures are not changed. Impact at detailed or local level is footnoted in relevant analyses.

Monthly data:

As from 21 July 2010 the Health and Social Care Information Centre has published provisional monthly NHS workforce data. As expected with provisional statistics, some figures may be revised from month to month as issues are uncovered and resolved. The monthly workforce data is not directly comparable with the annual workforce census; it only includes those staff on the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) (i.e. it does not include Primary care staff or Bank staff). There are also new methods of presenting data (headcount methodology is different and there is now a role count). This information is available from September 2009 onwards at the following website:
