1. NHS Lanarkshire is projecting a decrease in its workforce during 2016/17. This has been reflected in the projection for All Staff Groups, but as it is yet to be determined which staff groups this reduction will effect, no reduction is shown in individual staff groups. This means that the projected figures for All staff groups differ from the sum of the various staff groups in the table.
2. Includes interns as projected by NHS Education for Scotland.
