The Department does not collect information on the costs incurred by the National Health Service when recruiting staff. The configuration of services and the recruitment of staff required to deliver these services, is the responsibility of local NHS organisations when planning a workforce that is appropriate to deliver the health needs of their local population and which is based on clinical need and sound evidence.
