Notes:

  1. The data provided is as at 30 September each year.
  1. '.' denotes not applicable.
  1. Figures are shown for those NHS organisations that were in operation at the time of the respective Census. NHS workforce statistics are not available by parliamentary constituency.
  1. Between 2008 and 2012 Ashfield constituency was contained within and serviced by Nottinghamshire County PCT. From 2013 onwards Ashfield constituency has been within NHS Mansfield and Ashfield CCG. The four other CCGs which emerged from Nottinghamshire County PCT have been included in the data also to provide comparability with previous years.
  1. (1) Headcount Methodology: The new headcount methodology from 2010 onwards means this data is not fully comparable with previous years, due to improvements that make it a more stringent count of absolute staff numbers. Further information on the headcount methodology is available in the Census publication. The latest (2010 onwards) headcount methodology counts each person once only in each aggregated total; for example if a GP worked in both Mansfield and Ashfield CCG and in Rushcliffe CCG he would get counted once in each CCG but only once in the higher level Derby and Nottinghamshire Area Team.
