Statistics show change in NHS workforce over time

The number of full time staff working in the NHS in England has increased by 1.5% (17,900) since 2016, according to figures released by NHS Digital.

At 30 September 2017, there were 1.21m full time staff working for the NHS in England, compared to 1.20 million at the same point in 2016.

NHS Digital’s report combines workforce information for staff in NHS trusts, mental health trusts, CCGs, NHS support organisations and central bodies in England and the general practice workforce. The figures for both sectors are also available separately.
