NHS Ayrshire and Arran

  • Total staff in post is projected to remain at 8,629.3 WTE.

Additional information:

  • A range of transformational change programmes are underway which are at different stages of consideration and will have a direct impact upon NHS Ayrshire & Arran's workforce. These programmes of work are intrinsic to delivering a balanced financial position and therefore until they have concluded it is not possible at this time to reflect within the workforce projections the implications for the board's workforce which will be multi-disciplinary.

  • Administrative services is projected to decrease by 30.2 WTE (down 2.4 %). This includes a projected increase in Management (non AfC) of 1.0 WTE (up 4.8%), due to the employment of the new Director for Health & Social Care, a post previously hosted by Fife Council.

Additional information:

  • NHS Fife continues to restructure systems and processes to achieve efficiencies within the Administrative Services job family.
  • NHS Fife continues to review recruitment practices to meet the challenges faced as a result of an ageing workforce and an increased turnover rate.
