Re: World's Largest Employers

If I recall correctly it used to be said that the NHS had the second largest number of employees when the USSR Army was the largest.
Since then the USSR has broken up. The NHS staffing has also been reduced by out-sourcing  PFI and so on. Also with devolution the Health Services in the various UK countries are independent of one another.
I think that the stats require a closer look.e.g.  Is that people or whole time equivalents? In any case staff are not employed by "The NHS" they are employed by, for example, a hospital trust.
