As the demand for healthcare services has grown and the number of permanent staff has remained relatively static, temporary staffing has become increasingly common in the NHS. While temporary staff can help to ensure that patients receive the care they need, it can also be expensive and have implications for patient safety and staff morale.
Health systems, and their component organisations, have a universal desire to reduce the reliance on temporary staffing by improving workforce planning and investing in staff development and retention. But often the demands of day to day service delivery and the multifaceted nature of integrated working can make the process of understanding, analysing and opportunity spotting improvements in temporary staffing both complicated and difficult to resource.
