In-depth review of the psychiatrist workforce: Main report
The Centre for Workforce Intelligence (CfWI) was commissioned by the Department of Health (DH) and Health Education England (HEE) to conduct an in-depth review of the psychiatrist workforce in England, with a particular focus on fully trained psychiatrists with a certificate of completion of training (‘CCT holders’)
who typically are employed as consultants.
The review considered demand and supply for CCT holders in the six psychiatry specialties:
- general adult psychiatry
- psychiatry of old age
- child and adolescent psychiatry
- forensic psychiatry
- psychiatry of learning disability, and
- medical psychotherapy.
Please note that a technical report has been published alongside this main report. This provides additional information concerning the wider mental health workforce, psychiatry training, the psychiatrist workforce, and the data and assumptions the CfWI used in its modelling of the psychiatrist workforce.
