This edition of the Royal College of Psychiatrists manpower census enumerates the psychiatric staffing in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland as at September 1995.
 
Information is collected via the College's regional advisory structure and is, therefore, independent of the data provided by the Department of Health.
 
The returns are presented by region, by grade, and by specialty. Valuable information is therefore provided on the current staffing shortages in the specialty.
 
In addition to information on posts occupied it also shows the number of vacant posts and those occupied by locums.
This is the third annual census, and a changing pattern is now emerging showing an increase in the number of consultant vacancies but a steady, albeit gradual, increase in the number of posts. The most recent census does show some suggestion of recruitment difficulties in the training grades. Differences between regions and between specialties are also emerging.
 
The census should prove useful to those responsible for planning services and to personnel directors and others who have the responsibility of recruiting to psychiatric posts.
