NHS Digital publishes Hospital and Community Health Services workforce statistics. These include staff working in hospital trusts and clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), but not staff working in primary care, local authorities or private sector providers commissioned by the National Health Service.

In the Yorkshire and the Humber region, there were 3,983 full-time equivalent mental health nurses employed in October 2010 and 3,291 in October 2020.
