Nurses: Recruitment

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 174202, tabled on 23 March 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to the announcement by the Prime Minister in July 2020 of funding to deliver 50,000 more nurses by 2025, how many of those nursing vacancies (a) have been filled and (b) remain.

The information on number of vacancies filled is not held in the format requested as individual vacancies are not collected centrally, only aggregate numbers. However, overall trends show that nursing staff numbers are increasing therefore we are on track to deliver 50,000 more nurses by end of this Parliament.
