National analysis of mental health and learning disabilities and/or autism workforce information

Data correct as at 2022/23

Next update due: Mid October 2024

This data visualisation was developed in partnership and NHS England (formerly Health Education England).

It shows information from the Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (ASC-WDS) for the mental health and learning disability and/or autism workforces at a national level. You can view and select workforce information by each care need as well as by category, service type, and job role.
