The Strategic Workforce Planning & Intelligence Unit in the HSE publish a monthly staffing census called the Health Service Employment Report online here:

https://www.hse.ie/eng/staff/resources/our-workforce/workforce-reporting/health-service-employment-report-sept-2019.pdf.

This reports sets out current staffing WTE levels on a monthly basis, as well as how these levels compare to the previous month, and to the same period last year, and this is broken down by Employment Staff Group on page 2 of this report.

Information relating to October staffing levels are not as yet available, however the September data is already published at that link and as such, is publicly available.

The October data should be available at that same website shortly.
