NHS Digital publishes Hospital and Community Health Services workforce statistics. These include staff working in hospital trusts and clinical commissioning groups, but not staff working in primary care, local authorities or other providers.

NHS Digital cannot identify which of the nurse leavers had left within 12 months of completing their degree, nor whether they moved to primary care of social care sectors.
