Notes:

  1. Turnover data is based on headcount.
  2. These joiners are to Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust and to the HCHS Doctors and Nurse & health visitor staff groups.
  3. Data is based on all nurses and doctors who are paid through the NHS ESR.
  4. Complete ESR data of the quality required is only available from 2009, which is why we provided the data for the past 6 instead of 10 years.
  5. These figures include junior doctors.
  6. Following a public consultation in 2015, categorisation of trusts and staff groups has changed therefore restricting comparability with previous publications.
