Thanks to another Scottish Labour parliamentary question we can see that radiography staffing vacancies are, on average, running at 5.02%. The average UK employee turnover rate is around 15%. In Higher Education it’s 11%.
I suspect that level would be pretty de-stabilising, in the health service, but are vacancies running at 5% not a good thing, enabling some movement to allow promotion and the appointment of newly trained staff? If there were no vacancies at all, as was the case in schools in the early 80s, we’d hear plenty complaints about that.
