25% Reduction in Senior Management Posts Target – National Progress Towards 25% Reduction as at 31st March 2015

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

ISBN: 9781785445910

A national target was introduced to reduce the number of senior managers by 25% between 31st March 2010 and 1st April 2015. The publication shows the number of senior managers in post as at 31st March each year, and the national reduction since March 2010. These statistics are based on management information provided by NHS boards to the Scottish Government.

Executive Summary

The overall reduction in senior management in the five years of the target (financial years 2010/11, 2011/12, 2012/13, 2013/14 and 2014/15) has been 437.0 WTE (down 33.1%), which exceeds the 25% reduction target by 8.1 percentage points.
