National Trends Summer 2013


The latest Summer 2013 issue of NHS Professionals’ National Trends covers the period July 2012 to June 2013. For consistency, the format has been changed slightly to report ‘additional hours’ rather than ‘shifts’.

Demand for additional hours continues to increase across the Acute sector (+19%). Acute Trusts in the London area saw the largest increase (+27%) followed by the North (+19%) and the South of England (+14%). Demand in Acute Teaching Trusts increased by 24% with Acute Foundation Trusts up 22%.

Shift demand in Mental Health and Community Trusts has remained fairly stable over the full 12 months, but has started to grow in the final quarter (+5%) compared with the same period in 2012.
