1. Data are for full-time equivalent physiotherapists in England.

2. Unlike other measures in this section, the number of physiotherapists include those who work in hospital and community health or in primary care services, although it should be noted that numbers in primary care are currently small.

3. Data on the primary care network (PCN) workforce is limited and is not fully complete, therefore this chart includes an estimate of the number of physiotherapists there may be working in primary care networks across England.
