Launch of major new workforce report
Earlier today, we launched a major new report, There for us: a better future for the NHS workforce. Our report provides a comprehensive overview of where the workforce challenges are greatest, how these have developed, and what needs to be done to address them. The report is available online, along with a number of supporting resources.
Improving the lives of junior doctors
Our joint report developed with NHS Improvement and the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management identified eight high-impact actions to improve the working conditions of junior doctors. You can view the report on our website.
Joint guide on accountable care with Hempsons
We also launched a joint guide with Hempsons, our event partner, which identifies seven key steps STPs and their partner organisations should consider to support the evolution to accountable care. The report is available to download online.
