NHS Digital publishes Hospital and Community Health Services (HCHS) workforce statistics for England. These include staff working in hospital trusts and clinical commissioning groups, but excludes staff working in primary care, general practitioner surgeries, local authorities and other providers.

The number of midwives employed in each National Health Service trust in England by headcount and full time equivalent as at March 2021, the latest available data, is attached. The Department does not hold data on the funded midwifery establishment for each trust.
