17601 - Workforce Statistics

Please can you provide figures for the number of paramedics who have left their jobs over the past 4 years broken down per year. We’d like figures for 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18. Ideally I would like the figures from January to December each year, but if they are collected at different points in the year, please can you specify.

 

Please can you also provide figures for the number of paramedics recruited and starting work for those years as specified. 

Please can you provide any information on the reasons given for staff leaving their jobs. This would be confidential as we wouldn’t require any identification of the person, just the reasons.
