HSJ has published an article warning that Workforce shortages are a greater challenge to the NHS than funding. “New analysis from the Health Foundation, King’s Fund and Nuffield Trust finds that if current trends continue, the gap could reach almost 250,000 by 2030. If the pattern of people leaving the workforce before pension age continues, and the pipeline of newly trained domestic and international recruits doesn’t increase, there could be a shortage of more than 350,000 staff by 2030,” it says. This is an issue that is affecting many sectors, writes Edbury Daley, who track and report on the global procurement technology recruitment market. “We’ve talked about it being an issue in the procurement profession for several years now in our Insider reports, and recent data supports the theory that it’s a similar situation in other markets.” Read their report here.
