How can organisations best manage as the changes outlined in the Health Bill come into force and they need to protect services whilst striving to meet its challenging targets?

Healthcare organisations are entering a new era where financial pressures and new operational models need to be balanced with the need to provide quality care.

Making efficient use of existing resources - whether those are staff or expensive facilities and equipment - will be crucial for organisations, whether NHS or independent, in this new, more commercial environment which will demand a flexible response to an unpredictable future.

Effective use of the workforce can significantly help all healthcare organisations to rise to the challenge; to deliver improved productivity and higher quality services in an increasingly competitive environment.

Planning how you deploy your workforce - and making certain you have staff with the right skills - is essential to meet the financial challenges within the healthcare sector and deliver patient centred care.

Workforce planning has traditionally been seen as the role of human resources; however this is changing. Understanding the importance of planning the workforce to deliver service for today’s requirements and for the future is essential whether you are in a service, clinical, financial or planning role.
