1. In order to make the national target more consistent, NHS boards were given the opportunity to exclude cl inical 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 publ ication or the workforce projections publ ication. The definition used in the target al lows the exclusion of cl inical ly orientated staff from the management (non AfC) group and the inclusion of some AfC band 8a and above administration staff.
