Health Education England would like to work with digital, human resources (HR) and organisational leads in local or regional NHS organisations to address the capacity and capability challenges facing the NHS digital workforce in the next 10 years. This involves looking at three main workforce supply factors affecting the digital technology workforce:

  • Education and training pipelines
  • Recruitment and retention
  • Professional development (reskilling and upskilling)

The aim is to develop a set of national workforce plans for different segments of the digital technology workforce. The call for evidence is open for 6 weeks and closes on 13th June 2021, so click this link now to participate and get involved in the conversation.

The consultation is open to all those working in health or social care whose role includes any aspect of Informatics, so please pass the details onto colleagues who you think may be interested.
