The NHS workforce is facing unprecedented pressures, with healthcare systems experiencing a range of workforce challenges that have been exacerbated by the long-term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It has long been recognised that the NHS’s greatest strength is its people, but as demand for healthcare continues to grow, it is essential that our staff get the support they need to do their jobs effectively. By making the NHS a great place to work, strengthening and supporting leadership at all levels and ensuring health systems have the capacity and capabilities required to support patient need, health systems can be empowered to deliver efficiency, enhance staff retention and improve patient outcomes.
Arden & GEM provide strategic and operational workforce solutions that enable our customers to effectively deliver change which is underpinned by data and behavioural driven insights.
