In-depth review of the psychiatrist workforce: Technical 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 are typically employed as consultants.
The review considered demand and supply for CCT holders in today’s six psychiatry specialties:
- general (adult) psychiatry
- psychiatry of old age
- child and adolescent psychiatry
- forensic psychiatry
- psychiatry of learning disability
- medical psychotherapy.
The CfWI presented the key findings from this review in the In-depth review of the psychiatrist workforce main report (CfWI, 2014). This technical report provides additional information concerning the wider mental health workforce, psychiatry training, the psychiatrist workforce, together with the data and assumptions the CfWI used in its modelling of the psychiatry CCT holder workforce.
