Dear Scott

Assessment of the NHS Scotland workforce statistics

Thank you for your letter of 1 February requesting an assessment of the NHS Scotland workforce statistics, produced by NHS Education for Scotland.

I welcome your endeavours to publicly demonstrate the compliance of these statistics with the Code of Practice for Statistics. I am pleased to confirm that my team will shortly begin this assessment.

I am copying this letter to Duncan Buchanan, Head of Service, Public Health Scotland and Scott Wilson, Principal Information Analyst, Public Health Scotland.

Yours sincerely

Ed Humpherson
