Data on medical, dental, nursing and midwifery staff, as at 30 September 2021.

The NHS is the largest employer in Wales and currently employs more than 103,000 people, in almost 89,000 full-time equivalent (FTE) posts. Data on staff employed by the NHS is available from 1979; however due to changes in the classifications of staff only the overall numbers are strictly comparable over time.
