The information is not available in the format requested.

Health Education England’s (HEE’s) latest estimates of staff shortages and the plan for tackling these issues is set out in its Facing the Facts, Shaping the Future, A draft health and care workforce strategy for England to 2027 published in December 2017.

NHS Digital publishes the number of vacancies that are advertised on NHS Jobs, the dedicated online recruitment service for the National Health Service. However, as the basis of the figures is the number of vacancies advertised for the first time in each given month, it is not possible to determine from these figures the number of vacancies live at any given point in time. The figures only cover those vacancies advertised via NHS Jobs, and it is not always possible to determine how many posts are associated with any given advertisement. The published figures are at the HEE region and do not go to the level of individual trusts.

The latest figures are available at the following link:
