Strasys “Thinking Differently” Webinar Series

Healthcare Workforce – Achieving a paradigm shift by rethinking productivity through new perspectives

The £4bn efficiency opportunity

Date:  19th March 2024
Time:  13:00 – 14:15 (UK)
Location:  Virtual


In this webinar, we will tackle the workforce and productivity challenge. The workforce is the most valuable asset of any organisation, and expenditure constitutes 45% of the overall NHS budget. Initiatives to enhance staff well-being are ongoing, and the NHS Long Term Workforce Plan is committed to training and retaining more staff and reforming the way we work.

However, widespread problems remain – do we really understand how the workforce is feeling, how it is doing and what it needs? Current workforce planning in healthcare is activity-driven, linear and unconnected. Typically, very basic data and insights are used to inform Boards and plans, often reducing to regulatory and operational targets. The result is more inertia and inefficiencies, equating to a £20m productivity opportunity for a typical NHS Provider Trust.

We will cover

  • The size of the challenges and true causes of low productivity.
  • How to look at the workforce differently to meet needs – skills mix, motivation and engagement levels, inefficient processes, lack of clear goals or direction.
  • Solutions to engage your workforce and better understand needs.
