NHS Staffing Conference
The NHS employs 1.7 million people across the UK. It is the country’s biggest employer and ranks at number five globally. Despite the huge scale of its labour force, it is increasingly apparent that the NHS in England doesn’t have enough staff. In the last study that analysed staffing across all NHS staff, the National Audit Office (NAO) found there were about 50,000 vacancies in 2014. The NAO estimated that there was a shortfall of 5.9 per cent between the number of staff that NHS organisations had budgeted for and the number of staff actually in post. In order to address these shortages, the NHS must look to invest in training and recruitment in conjunction with a more effective use of existing employees. In addition to the recruitment costs associated with high turnover and vacancy levels, the extra money hospitals have to pay for temporary staff, which is a huge drain on overstretched finances.
Returning for its third year, Salford Professional Developments' NHS Staffing Conference is gaining a reputation as an inspirational and empowering event offering ideas for innovation both on a small and large scale. Join us for the NHS Staffing Conference where experts from across the health sector will discuss how NHS leaders can recruit, train and retain the staff they need. Understand how the workforce can be redeployed as the NHS moves to a more prevention based model of care, how Brexit will affect recruitment and how the health service can reduce its dependency on locums and agency staff.
