The forthcoming Spending Review will set out our plans for future investment in the National Health Service workforce.

The number of anaesthetists has increased by over 26% since 2010. In 2020 Health Education England recruited 410 anaesthetic trainees across England with a 100% fill rate nationally. We continue to monitor the effectiveness of the current arrangements and consider the further expansion of specialty training places, including anaesthesia.
