Event description

Description

The NHS is battling a spell of ill-health. Suffering from a chronic shortage of nurses, doctors, midwives, general practitioners and beds; as well as a growing dependency on costly agency workers, further compounded by recent figures from the Nursing and Midwifery Council and British Medical Association indicating that the number of EU healthcare professionals coming to work in the UK is depleting at an astonishing rate; as the number of medics from the European Economic Area leaving the UK is rising at a ratio of almost one in every five.

The widely maligned public sector pay cap, uncertainty created by Brexit, staff shortages and under funding are creating an environment that has led to:

  • NHS vacancies rising by more than 15% in the last year.
  • More than 10,000 EU staff leaving the NHS since the Brexit vote.
  • Projections of £15bn financial shortfalls by 2020.
  • The number of nurses and midwives coming to work in Britain from the EU plunging by 89%.
  • Missed A&E treatment targets for consecutive years.
  • An influx of private healthcare providers competing for NHS contracts.

Open Forum Events is collaborating with NHS stakeholders, healthcare professionals and associations to present NHS Staff: Skills, Retention and Recruitment; providing engaging perspectives and actionable debate to deliver solutions to the challenges posed to the NHS workforce.
