All NHS Boards have been asked to develop Local Delivery Plans (LDPs) and workforce plans, as well as using workforce workload tools. As part of this process, NHS Boards have been asked to provide workforce projections for 2012/13. These projections are based on staff in post whole time equivalents (wte).

Executive Summary

•Overall estimated increase of 113.6 wte (up 0.1%).

•Largest estimated reduction is in Administrative Services of 411.0 wte (down 1.7%), which includes a reduction in Management (non AfC) of 45.7 wte (down 4.6%).

•Estimated reduction in Nursing & Midwifery of 325.0 wte (down 0.6%), this includes an estimated increase of 174.8 wte interns. The overall reduction is linked to the transfer of 109.8 wte nursing and midwifery staff from NHS Highland to Highland Council on 1st April 2012.
