Psychiatric nurses are not identified separately in the Health and Social Care Information Centre’s (HSCIC) workforce statistics. Area of Work, which is identified, is purely the area, function or specialty where the work activity takes place. The attached table shows the number of nurses within the psychiatry area of work from September 2010 to September 2015, the midpoint of the financial year. The data is sourced from the HSCIC’s monthly workforce statistics.
