NHS 'dangerously' short of 100,000 staff

27/02/2018

From the BBC

The NHS in England has nearly 100,000 jobs unfilled, a situation described as "dangerously" understaffed.

The total represents one in 12 of all the posts in the health service and would be enough to staff 10 large hospitals.

It includes 35,000 nurse posts and nearly 10,000 doctor vacancies.

The figures have been revealed in a finance report from NHS Improvement, showing NHS services are heading for a £931m deficit this year, twice what was planned.
