THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will be a timely opportunity to discuss priorities for the implementation of Health Education England’s full Workforce Strategy, which is due to be published later this year.
Delegates will discuss the extent to which the strategy is likely to be successful in delivering its key aims - encouraging collaboration across sectors, enhancing data and measurement, improving recruitment, and reducing reliance on agency staff - and will consider the further steps that might be taken.
The agenda includes discussion on long term workforce planning as the new Secretary of State for Health and Social Care announces that workforce will be one of his key priorities moving forward, and those attending will consider the impact of the three-year pay deal on staff morale, and how staff wellbeing might be supported further in order to create a positive work culture in the NHS.
Planned sessions will also examine the challenges of responding to Brexit and the impact of the Home Office announcement that doctors and nurses will be taken out of the Tier 2 visa cap in order to increase international recruitment.
Following the Government’s consultation on Promoting professionalism, reforming regulation, further sessions will focus on the next steps for professional regulation and what more might be done to improve patient safety and experience.
