‘Significant’ increase in HSE staff turnover this year

By David Lynch - 14th Oct 2022

staff turnover

 The staff turnover rate in the HSE for 2022 is “showing a significant increase” on the last three years, the Medical Independent (MI) has been informed. 

“The current data, up to June, indicates that the percentage rate of turnover in 2022 has increased beyond that seen in 2019, 2020, and 2021, for which the rates were broadly the same,” a HSE spokesperson told MI

“The indications in 2022, thus far, are showing a significant increase in the rate of almost 1 per cent.” 

The overall HSE staff turnover rate for 2021 was 7.7 per cent. The ‘medical and dental’ sector had the highest turnover rate at 9.8 per cent. 

“The staff turnover rate is collected quarterly and the data beyond June is not yet available. The rates this year are showing an overall increased rate of 0.9 per cent on last year’s rate,” according to the spokesperson. 

The HSE spokesperson added that this means that the number of staff to be recruited for replacement positions “will potentially increase to well beyond previous years”. 

“An increase in turnover requires increased recruitment capacity and an available supply, which adds further to the overall recruitment burden. Particularly within a highly competitive global market whereby there are shortages in the health workforce, this, as signalled in the HSE resourcing strategy, is a risk to overall recruitment delivery.” 

As MI reported in June, a first quarter review of the HSE National Service Plan 2022 sent to the Minister for Health expressed concern that this year’s recruitment targets will be difficult to achieve.
