NHS workforce will be at the heart of digital transformation in health and care

28 June 2018

 

Adam Wright, policy officer at NHS Providers, said:

“We welcome the interim findings of the Topol Review and work carried out by Health Education England to engage with the NHS front line.

“It is right the NHS proactively takes steps to prepare its workforce to deliver health and care in a digital future. The health secretary has often spoken of the role of digital transformation in the ten year plan for the NHS. The health service workforce will be at the heart of delivering the benefits for patients that technology can bring. 

We must ensure training is properly funded, and that staff are supported and fully engaged.

“Upskilling the current workforce will be as important as securing staff with the right skills mix for the future. But we must ensure training is properly funded, and that staff are supported and fully engaged.

“We look forward to contributing to the review.”
