Notes:

1. Some individual trusts’ figures may in some years be subject to data quality issues. All figures are validated and signed off by trusts prior to publication.

2. Full-time equivalent figures are rounded to the nearest whole number.

3. ‘—’ zero.

4. Data Quality. Workforce statistics are compiled from data sent by more than 300 NHS trusts and PCTs in England. The NHS information centre for health and social care liaises closely with these organisations to encourage submission of complete and valid data and seeks to minimise inaccuracies and the effect of missing and invalid data. Processing methods and procedures are continually being updated to improve data quality. Where this happens any impact on figures already published will be assessed but unless this is significant at national level they will not be changed. Where there is impact only at detailed or local level this will be footnoted in relevant analyses.
