Can we futureproof the health and care workforce?

The NHS has a serious workforce crisis, 10% vacancy rates are common across the country and across professional groups, often higher. This was true before Covid. Post-covid, record levels of burnout and high numbers exiting the NHS are reported. At the same time the nature of healthcare work is changing. The impact of technology, AI, demographics, public expectations, amongst others, means our workforce needs to change too.

In partnership with the Health Innovation Network, this conference will provide a forum for discussion of the current crisis facing the NHS and the opportunities for change.
