Thank you for your request for information about the following:
Can you kindly confirm how many live "Practitioner Members" there are @ 31st August 2022 and how many Practitioner Membership Records are not presently updated to 31st March 2021 please
Your request was received on 17 October 2022 and I am dealing with it under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
As at the 31 August 2022, there were 55,397 live practitioner members with 73,217 open practitioner employments. However, please note, that some members have more than one open practitioner employment.
35,915 practitioner membership records are not presently updated to 31 March 2021 in respect of 64,577 open practitioner employments. There are several reasons why records may not have been updated. This could be because practitioner members have not yet submitted their certificates, there are queries on the certificates, or certificates are missing from earlier years which is preventing an update to later years.
