In its response to the Future Forum Report, the Government reiterated its commitment to ‘greater accountability and responsibility for employers to plan and develop their workforce, held to account by the HEE.’ (June 2011)

Now in its sixth successful year, this national conference and Policy Review TV broadcast brought together nursing professionals and educationalists from across the UK with health managers to share innovations and examine current policies in relation to the Health and Social Care Bill, their risks and the opportunities they present. The range of experts will ensure viewers are equipped and inspired to face the challenges of service redesign for greater care at home, chronic disease management and end-of-life care.

Footage of this conference will:

  • Bring viewers up-to-date with the changes the NHS reforms will mean for the nursing workforce and education providers;
  • Help health and local government HR profile the nursing needs and responsibilities and work with the HEE to get the right skill mix across health professional education;
  • Look at how countries around the UK are tackling diverse demands to get the most from their existing and future nursing workforce;
  • Help viewers understand the commissioning roles of Health and Wellbeing Boards and the demands they will put on health services and for nursing;
  • Look at retention issues in education and nursing;
  • Consider continuing impact of immigration rules and EU internal migration on supply and skills;
  • Hear about the role of Health Education England;
  • Look at local, employer and regional demands and variations in nursing skills and workforce patterns.
