This release by NHS Education for Scotland (NES) provides a quarterly update, as at 31 December 2019, for the Psychology Services workforce staff in post and staff vacancies.
Figures are presented as headcount (actual numbers of staff) and whole time equivalent (WTE), which adjusts the figures to take account of part-time working.
The Scottish Government 10 year Mental Health Strategy 2017-2027 was published in March 2017. The strategy highlights the need to increase the supply of the workforce and to ensure the skill mix across a wide range of services meets the needs of the population.
The next release of this publication will be 2 June 2020.
