This report gives a new analysis of the trends in the numbers, demographics and turnover of nursing and support to nursing staff employed in primary care and community nursing. The analysis provides new insights for commissioners and providers of services and education at a time when government policy is focusing on increased provision of health services outside of hospitals. The analysis adds to current knowledge on the statistics published by the Department of Health because it considers both professional qualified nurses and other groups such as health care assistants. It also considers the workforce by service area e.g. services to children, families and young people rather than by professional qualifications e.g. health visiting, and it provides information on groups such as staff nurses in district nursing services and contraceptive nurses that are not usually considered.
