The Caledonian Club, 9 Halkin Street, London SW1X 7DR
THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will bring together senior policymakers, NHS staff and further stakeholders to assess the future of the health and social care workforce in England.
Delegates will assess the next steps as Health Education England publishes a draft NHS workforce strategy to 2027 - and priorities going forward for improving recruitment and retention rates following Brexit.
The seminar takes place in the context of goals outlined in the Next Steps on the NHS Five Year Forward View, the General Practice Forward View and AHPs into Action to improve knowledge sharing and service efficiency, as well as the introduction of ambitious targets for GP recruitment and creating medical training places.
Delegates will consider priorities for primary care, including GP mental health and reducing burnout; and for the secondary care workforce, as NHS Providers identifies workforce concerns as the single biggest challenge facing trusts.
They will also examine key issues for social care, following the publication of CQC’s State of Care report, which argued for collaborative working and the further integration of services - and the future for public sector pay, following the announcement that the Government will fund pay awards for NHS staff on the Agenda for Change contract providing they are part of a deal with the unions to boost productivity.
Further sessions examine priorities for Health Education England, and for training, skills and development; as well as regulation, safety and patient experience.
