Workforce capacity – solving the supply and demand puzzle
Due to the recent death of Her Majesty, The Queen, we have made the decision to postpone our Workforce Capacity webinar that was due to take place this Wednesday 14th September.
It will now be held on Tuesday 4 October 2022.
Join our panel of clinical and industry experts in conversation as part of our series of free, live webinars.
Connect Health “Change” has developed a series of webinars to make and embed transformation in healthcare. Aimed at system leaders and clinicians across the NHS, the webinars provide practical solutions to the challenging issues we are all grappling with.
Today’s health and care workforce has been through the most gruelling two years in NHS history. Workforce shortages are having a serious and detrimental impact on services and will hinder efforts to deal with backlogs. There are 110,000 job vacancies across NHS trusts and many thousands more in primary care and social care.
Unsurprisingly, morale and wellbeing has been damaged and the recent NHS staff survey highlighted that only 27% NHS workers feel that there are enough staff in their organisation to allow them to do their jobs properly.
This webinar will consider where we are now, what alternative solutions could be considered and will look to the future. It will bring together those on the frontline delivery of services and patient perspectives, together with expert opinion and emerging evidence.
This webinar will debate
- How big is the problem – what are the latest insights?
- How do we solve widespread workforce shortages?
- What is the antidote for staff burnout?
- How can we better support hard working, but overstretched professionals under sustained pressure?
- What is the latest learning on long-term workforce planning and how is it being applied?
