NHS vacancies being filled
New figures by the Government show that NHS vacancies in England are falling.

The NHS vacancy figures that can be seen on the Department of Health’s website show:

• Consultant vacancy rate down from 4.4% in March 2004 to 3.3% in March 2005.
• GP vacancy rate down from 3.1% in March 2004 to 2.4% in March 2005.
• Qualified nursing vacancy rate (excluding practice nurses) down from 2.6% to 1.9% in March 2005 – a fifth successive fall.
• Qualified Allied Health Professionals vacancy rate down from 4.3% in March 2004 to 3.4% in March 2005.
• Qualified scientific, therapeutic and technical staff down from 2.6% in March 2004 to 2.2% in march 2005.

Health Minister Lord Warner said: “The latest figures show fewer vacancies in all the main staff groups within the NHS.

“This suggests that the increased demand for healthcare professionals, which was created by the expansion of NHS services, is now beginning to match supply as more NHS jobs are filled.

“We now have 31,210 consultants working in the NHS and 32,190 GPs. The growth of workforce in the NHS has been crucial to helping the NHS deliver improvements on areas like waiting times, coronary heart disease, cancer treatment and access to services - but I know there is more work to do.

“The challenge is to develop new ways of working so that staff can work more productively, delivering quality services that are centered on patients' needs”.
