Source - NHS Board data.

1. In order to make the national target more consistent, NHS Boards were given the opportunity to exclude clinical staff on executive and senior management pay grades, but include administrative posts on AfC Band 8a and above that they would class as part of the senior managers.

2. These figures are not comparable to the Management (non AfC) figures in the National Statistics publication or the Workforce Projections publication. The definition used in the target allows the exclusion of clinically orientated staff from the Management (non AfC) group and the inclusion of some AfC Band 8a and above Administration staff.

3. Change between 31 March 2010 and 31 March 2013.

4. These data include revised Senior Management WTE figures for NHS 24 in Years 1 and 2 due to job family reclassification.

5. These data include revised Senior Management WTE figures for NHS Dumfries & Galloway in Year 2 whilst a staff member was in an interim position.

Notes:

Scottish Ambulance Service - increase

As a result of some reconfiguration of some areas of our Senior Management team, our NHSS Senior Management Reduction Template return for 2012/13 shows a slight temporary increase. As we take forward our Frontline Leadership and Management Programme and review of the clinical element of these roles, we fully anticipate that we will achieve the 25% target reduction by 2015.
