The number of doctors in the NHS has also risen by 7,890, figures to the end of April 2020 show.

Earlier this month the latest UCAS statistics revealed a 16% rise in applicants for nursing and midwifery courses in England, the second year-on-year increase. The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has also reported its largest-ever annual increase of registered nursing and midwifery professionals, with around 18,370 more on the permanent register to work in the UK compared to a year ago.

On Tuesday the government announced a 2.8% pay rise for NHS doctors and dentists, backdated to April 2020, accepting in full the recommendations of the Review Body on Doctors’ and Dentists’ Remuneration.

Separate figures released on Tuesday by Health Education England also show the number of GP trainees in England has risen for the third year running, with recruitment up 15% compared to the same point last year.

The figures for April include some former healthcare professionals who bravely volunteered to return to the frontline during the pandemic. April figures also show that 442 returners were identified, of which there are 82 doctors and 112 nurses and health visitors. Not all returners are reflected in the monthly workforce stats as they could have been employed on fixed-term, honorary or bank contracts, or via NHS Professionals.
