Appendix 1: NHS board breakdown

NHS Ayrshire and Arran

  • Total staff in post is projected to remain at 8,827.2 WTE.
  • All Medical and non-medical staff groups are projected to remain the same as in 2016/17.

Additional information:

  • NHS A&A is undertaking an overarching programme of transformational change covering a 3 year period. The impact upon staff arising from this programme will be multi-disciplinary, however until the work is complete and associated financial planning is agreed it is not possible to reflect the agreed workforce implications within the projections. For this reason, in addition to the underlying financial environment within NHS A&A of a recurring deficit, the workforce projections for this year are flat lined.

4. Management (non- AfC) is a sub group of administration services and data are not comparable to the 25% reduction target in senior management posts. The definition used in the target allows the exclusion of clinically orientated staff from within this group, and the inclusion of some AfC administration staff (band 8a and above).

NHS Borders

  • Total staff in post is projected to increase by 25.2 WTE (up 1.0%).
  • Staff groups expected to increase include:

Medical ( HCHS) projected to increase by 13.0 (6.2%); and

Nursing and Midwifery, increasing by 10.2 (0.9%).

Additional information:

  • NHS Borders are having success in recruiting new / replacement consultants to all specialties including shortage specialties. There is an increase in consultant numbers year on year due to developments in some specialties (Haematology- 33%; Anaesthetics – 14%; Radiology – 14%).
  • There has been developments and increased establishments in some areas, better recruitment outcomes to vacancies and therefore less reliance on agency/temporary staffing (e.g. agency locums in 2016 replaced by NHS Trainees or NHS Clinical Development Fellows in 2017/18), contributing to the increased projections. NHS Borders are having more success in recruiting to funded establishments and project that trend will continue in 2017-2018.

NHS Dumfries and Galloway

  • Nursing and midwifery is projected to increase by 33.5 WTE (up 1.9%).
  • Support services is projected to increase by 21.0 WTE (up 5.5%), mainly due to Domestic Services required to support new build.

Additional information:

NHS Fife

  • Total staff in post is projected to increase by 31.0 WTE (up 0.4%).
  • Medical ( HCHS) staff in post is projected to increase by 10.6 WTE (up 2.0%). This takes account of ongoing recruitment activity into vacancies which are part of the current funded establishment and will further reduce reliance on a supplementary workforce.
  • Other Therapeutic Services staff in post is projected to increase by 30.0 WTE (up 11.4%). Developments include ongoing recruitment activity, plus new developments, supported by external funding sources, to progress key themes within the clinical strategy including increasing access to psychological therapies, and introducing a 7 day service within pharmacy.

Additional information:

  • The composition of the workforce is projected to evolve over the next twelve months, reflecting ongoing recruitment into vacancies which are part of NHS Fife’s current funded establishment whilst departments simultaneously restructure systems and processes to meet increasing demand for patient services. The net impact of this recruitment will be a 0.4% change in the total staff in post ( WTE), funded in part from external sources in order to progress key recommendations within the Clinical Strategy.
  • NHS Fife is actively engaged on a number of fronts to plan for a sustainable and effective workforce.

NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde

  • Total staff in post is projected to decrease by 62.5 WTE (down 0.2%).
  • The Majority of this decrease will come from:

Administrative Services, down 90.0 WTE (1.7%), where there is an expectation that efficiencies will be achieved as a result of the current review of e-Health and wider patient administration support roles; and

Support Services, down 50.0 WTE (1.4%), to reflect an on-going trend of efficiency as the decommissioning of estate continues.

  • Medical ( HCHS) is projected to increase by 12.0 WTE (up 0.3%), and will be driven by vacancies currently in the system.
  • Nursing and midwifery is projected to increase by 56.0 WTE (up 0.4%).

Additional information:

  • NHSGGC are projecting a small reduction in the workforce through 2017/18 to support the need for financial savings underpinned by service redesigns across a number of areas.

NHS Lothian

  • Total staff in post is projected to increase by 140.8 WTE (up 0.7%)
  • Medical ( HCHS) is projected to increase by 14.6 WTE (up 0.7%). This is mainly driven by investments in the workforce following a review by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.
  • Nursing and midwifery is projected to increase 38.4 WTE (up 0.4%).
  • Support Services is expected to increase by 100.6 WTE (up 5.2%), and this is largely due to the New Royal Hospital for Sick Children ( NRHSC) relocating.

Additional information:

  • Within the nursing workforce there have been significant investments made in growing the health visiting workforce and investing in the children’s nursing workforce as part of the move to the NRHSC.
  • The substantial growth in the support services workforce represent the increased requirement for the NRHSC which represents a large site incorporating increased floor space and accommodation for families.

  • Within the workforce projections, cognisance has been given to the significant change and development that NHS 24 is currently undergoing as an organisation, in addition to the planned implementation of the frontline technology platform as part of the Organisational Change Programme. However, as the impact, on the operating model, of the implementation cannot yet be fully determined, it is possible that a revision of the workforce skills mix and numbers will be required; any revision would be contained within the financial allocation given for 2017/18.

NHS National Services Scotland ( NSS)

  • Support services is projected to increase by 52.5 WTE (up 16.2%), with the delivery of service predominantly in the new SNBTS National Centre, where a number of Domestic Services are being TUPE transferred across to NSS.

Additional information:

NSS’s strategic direction, as reflected in the 5 year plan is to:

  • Underpin NHSScotland with excellent support services and expertise
  • Accelerate the creation of effective “once for Scotland” and regional solutions; and to
  • Expand our services to the wider public sector.

The scope and scale of our ambition will be dictated by the extent to which NSS drives the delivery of the Health & Social Care Delivery Plan by delivering solutions for Scotland. The financial and workforce plan reflect known commitments only, and any further expansion will be dependent on a redistribution of finance and workforce as part of any future service transformation.

1. All figures in this table have been rounded to the nearest 1 decimal place, and exlude Interns.

2. Due to rounding, figures presented under board baseline and projections may not sum to the total for all staff groups.

3. Figures presented under change and change % have been calculated from the original unrounded data provided by each NHSScotland board. As such, they may not be possible to reproduce from the rounded WTE figures presented in the table.

4. Management (non- AfC) is a sub group of administration services and data are not comparable to the 25% reduction target in senior management posts. The definition used in the target allows the exclusion of clinically orientated staff from within this group, and the inclusion of some AfC administration staff (band 8a and above).
