Workforce and expenses information

The Government has set out the need for greater transparency to enable the public to hold public bodies and politicians to account. This includes commitments relating to public expenditure, intended to help reduce the deficit and achieve better value for money.

As part of the transparency agenda, the Government has made a number of initial commitments with regard to Central Government expenditure. These are set out in a letter from the Prime Minister to the Secretaries of State in 2010.

In line with the Government’s drive to improve the transparency of how public funds are used, the HTA has released the following which will be updated quarterly.

2020/21 (April 2020 - March 2021)

2019/20 (April 2019 - March 2020)

2018/19 (April 2018 - March 2019)

2017/18 (April 2017 - March 2018)

Management information on Department of Health workforce

As part of the transparency agenda, Central Government departments as directed by the Cabinet Office, are now required to publish information on their workforce. The workforce management information provides an insight into how many people are employed, and their pay bill. This is the first time departments are publishing how many people they employ, both within the department itself and non departmental public bodies, and how much this costs the taxpayer. The HTA is included in the Department of Health's information.

The monthly figures are organisations’ own management information published in the interests of transparency. It should be borne in mind that unlike the Office of National Statistics, there is no detailed quality assurance undertaken of the monthly information by the Cabinet Office. The HTA, however, undertakes its own internal quality assurance to ensure that the figures reported are as accurate as possible.
