Taking the Temperature reports - powered by Liaison

Our Taking the Temperature (TTT) reports have been informing and empowering the NHS for more than three years. These research reports, powered by the unique data that Liaison holds on NHS temporary workforce spending, provide unparalleled management information and insight into patterns and trends in NHS temporary staffing. With more than a quarter of all NHS trusts and boards now using our workforce management services, we’re able to draw on accurate and reliable data to show exactly how much is being spent on what.

Using anonymised data, the reports analyse pay and commission by grade and specialty across multiple trusts and boards, and compare results by size, type, region and agency.  We produce both annual and quarterly research reports, all of which are accessible and free to download on our website.

Our TTT reports have made headlines in both national news media and health sector publications including The Times, The Telegraph, The Daily Mail, The Health Service Journal, and National Health Executive.
