Supplementary notes

HCHS doctors include: Consultant, Associate Specialist, Specialty Doctor, Staff Grade, Specialty Registrar, Core Training, Foundation Doctor Year 2, Foundation Doctor Year 1, Hospital Practitioner / Clinical Assistant, and Other and Local HCHS Doctor Grades.
Headcount totals are not FTE and are unlikely to equal the sum of components due to some staff working in more than one role.
Full Time Equivalent (FTE) refers to the proportion of full time contracted hours that the post holder is contracted to work. 1 would indicate they work a full set of hours, 0.5 that they worked half time.
These data relate to the HCHS workforce directly employed in NHS Trusts and other core organizations who are paid.
