Notes:

1. Vacancy data are from the Vacancy Survey 2006

2. Three month vacancy information is as at 31 March 2006.

3. Three month vacancies are vacancies which Trusts are actively trying to fill, which had lasted for three months or more (full time equivalents).

4. Three month vacancy rates are three month vacancies expressed as a percentage of three month vacancies plus staff in post

5. Three month vacancy rates are calculated using staff in post from the medical and dental and Non-Medical Workforce Censuses September 2005.

6. Percentages are rounded to one decimal place:

* = figures where sum of staff in post (as at 30 September 2005) and vacancies (as at 31 March 2006) is less than 10.

__ = zero.

7. Vacancy and staff in post numbers are rounded to the nearest whole number.
