This ninth annual census undertaken by the Royal College of Psychiatrists relates to psychiatric staffing in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as at 30 September 2000. This was the second year using a new census database, which has provided additional data relevant to psychiatry stemming from the restructuring of training, the introduction and tracking of National Training Numbers (NTNs), Certificates of Completion of Specialist Training (CCSTs) and the requirements of the successor to the NHS Executives’ Specialist Workforce Advisory Group (SWAG), the Workforce Numbers Advisory Board. Additional resources have been put in to enable meticulous checking of the data and we have taken steps to try and ensure that the College list of employing authorities matches that held at the Department of Health of all trusts with psychiatric staff.
 
This year, more information is included about CCSTs, the breakdown of those specialist registrars seeking dual accreditation and also the projected CCST completion dates. More comparative data have been provided giving a historical perspective from 1995 onwards. The census forms have also been included for information.
 
The census remains the most accurate picture we have of psychiatric staffing in the UK and is increasingly used as the most authoritative database in all relevant negotiations with the Department of Health when negotiating for increases in the psychiatric workforce at any level
