NHS Occupational Code Manual Version 8.1

Occupation codes are the traditional way of identifying numbers of staff in specific work sectors of the NHS in a consistent way. Occupation codes cover staff in the Hospital and Community Health Service (HCHS), including both medical and non-medical.

The NHS Occupational Codes are maintained by The NHS Information Centre for health and social care, on behalf of the Department of Health. This updated version of the manual contains a series of improvements to the definitions and guidance notes.
