Securing the future workforce supply: Obstetrics and gynaecology stocktake – Centre for Workforce Intelligence [UK] – January 2015

“The Centre for Workforce Intelligence (CfWI) was commissioned by the Department of Health (DH) and Health Education England (HEE) to conduct a stocktake review of the obstetrics and gynaecology (O&G) workforce in England. The review has a particular focus on fully trained obstetricians and gynaecologists with a certificate of completion of training (CCT holders), typically employed as consultants.

The CfWI has estimated the future level of workforce supply that would be needed to maintain current levels of O&G service on a per-patient basis. It has also considered the number of higher specialty training numbers required to ensure supply is broadly in balance with expected patient demand by the end of the projection period (2028). Additionally, the CfWI has also provided an estimate about the O&G workforce that would be required to deliver a robust consultant-led seven-day service.”

“This speech and language therapy (SLT) stocktake seeks to analyse, where possible, the whole SLT workforce, including the considerable proportion working outside the NHS. The review also considers inter-professional working between SLTs and other clinicians who jointly deliver care. The CfWI was specifically asked to:

identify the key drivers of demand and supply for the SLT workforce
review the available evidence on service delivery, workforce workload and capacity
estimate the level of training commissions that would be needed to ensure workforce supply is broadly in balance with expected demand in 2025.”

Mapping the core public health workforce – Centre for Workforce Intelligence (CFWI) [UK] – October 2014

“The Mapping the core public health workforce report was commissioned by Public Health England (PHE), Health Education England (HEE) and the Department of Health (DH) to provide analysis and intelligence of which staff roles make up the core public health workforce in England.

During the course of this project, the CfWI has defined and provided numbers for 11 staff groups. These are based on staff who typically work between levels 5 and 9 on the Public Health Skills and Knowledge Framework (PHSKF).

Our research has concluded that the number of core public health workers in England is likely to range from around 36,000 to 41,000 people. The size of the range should be viewed as an indicator of the lack of reliable workforce data for several professions or staffing groups outlined in the report.”

The Principles of Workforce Integration – Skills for Care – 17 July 2014

CfWI contributes to newly launched principles of workforce integration – CfWI Centre for Workforce Intelligence – 17 July 2014

“Skills for Care have launched new ‘Principles of Workforce Integration’ at the Local Government Association conference, designed to help care professionals to work together to meet people’s care and support needs.

Underpinning the six core principles is the idea that people who have care and support needs want care provided in straightforward ways that makes sense to them, reflecting their lives, needs and wishes.

The principles have been developed to support practitioners, managers and organisations to think about what integration means for their organisation and how effective workforce development can drive its implementation.”

Standards for Employers of Social Workers in England – revised – LGA – 20 May 2014

Notification of publication from the Centre for Workforce Intelligence

“The Standards for Employers of Social Workers in England have been re-developed to give social work employers and those working in social work access to a pool of professional resources and information that incorporates the essentials of what supports good social work practice.

They aim to benefit every social worker employed by a local authority, health or voluntary sector organisation by clearly identifying the development opportunities, resources and accountability arrangements that employers should have in place to ensure they are providing the right level of support to social workers for their everyday work and continuing professional development.

The Standards, published on May 20, bring together an updated set of core values that are shared across local authorities, health and social care partners, ensuring that social workers can expect the same levels of support across all social worker roles in all organisations. They are aimed at enabling social workers to do their jobs more effectively and supporting them in today’s changing landscape of social services.

There are eight individual employer standards that cover all levels of employees from managers to student social workers. These fall into three over-arching areas of focus that social workers should expect:”

Horizon 2035: International responses to big picture challenges: a review of changing global models of care and the workforce of the future – Centre for Workforce Intelligence CFWI – May 2014

“The question we are addressing in this paper is: are there examples of models of care in other countries that are similar to the big picture challenges facing the health and care workforce in England, and therefore should be considered in plausible scenarios for Horizon 2035?

The report aims to provide short, digestible analysis of international examples which are clearly related to developments in health and care policy in England. It identifies various developments concerning six countries: Australia, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, Sweden and the USA – and relates these developments to the Big Picture Challenges identified by the CfWI Horizon Scanning team last year (http://www.cfwi.org.uk/our-work/horizon-scanning-big-picture-challenges) with suggestions on what the workforce implications of these are.”

The technology horizon: Preliminary review on technologies impacting the future health and social care workforce – Centre for Workforce Intelligence – 10 October 2013

“The Centre for Workforce Intelligence’s Horizon Scanning team has today published a paper designed to stimulate thinking around the impact of future technologies on the health and social care workforce.

The technology horizon: Preliminary review on technologies impacting the future health and social care workforce has been compiled from a literature scan across 28 selected initiatives or agencies from the International Network of Agencies for Health Technology Assessment and aims to provide a starting point to consider factors that may influence the requirements, numbers and proportions of the future workforce.

Developed with a team from the University of Manchester, it considers new and emerging technologies that are likely to impact the health and social care workforce which have been pooled into five emerging themes.

therapeutic technology – technologies used in the treatment of disease and injury, including pharmacological, surgical and psychological therapies
diagnostic technology – technologies for identifying diseases and other conditions
enabling technology – technologies that mitigate the impact of disease or disability
preventive technology – technologies that reduce the risk or severity of illness and injury
organisational technology – technologies supporting alternative health and social care delivery configurations and organisational design.

The purpose of the research is not to predict technological developments, but to identify possible areas of change, that may influence the requirements, numbers and proportions of the future workforce, and could stimulate changes in education and training, multidisciplinary working or priorities and practices.

Further research will include greater analysis of the trends and drivers identified in this report, and the CfWI will work with expert stakeholders to examine the workforce implications in more detail.”

“The Centre for Workforce Intelligence (CfWI) has published a review of the future supply and demand for the pharmacist workforce in England looking ahead to 2040.

The work, which was commissioned by the Department of Health, was set in the context of the ongoing rise in pharmacist student numbers (more than doubling from 1999 to 2009) and the Modernising Pharmacy Careers (MPC) Professional Board recommendation that the four-year pharmacy masters degree and pre-registration training year should be integrated into a single five-year course. It considers the risks of an oversupply of MPharm graduates compared with the demand for qualified pharmacists and supply of pre-registration placements.

Key findings include that it is likely that there will be a surplus supply of pharmacists in the future unless action is agreed in the short-term. In order to tackle this potential oversupply, the CfWI has issued a series of recommendations including:”

“We have today published a series of reports and summaries on the future shape of the nursing and midwifery workforces up to 2016, and horizon scanning reports looking ahead 20 years.

The projections shown in these reports represent unconstrained demand based on ‘what if’ assumptions in the model. They provide a range of possible scenarios which need to be considered alongside Health Education England local education and training board (LETB) investment plans and other emerging evidence to refine the assumptions and produce a clearer picture of likely future supply and demand.

The publications are the culmination of a project commissioned by the Department of Health in 2012 to support the development of policy on the nursing and midwifery contribution to healthcare. They provide guidance to the health education system through Health Education England (HEE) and LETBs as they develop their workforce and education commissioning plans.”

The paper also outlines the key factors influencing demand and supply of adult social care apprenticeships. These include:

changes in funding allocations
renewed national policy and strategy
increased demand for adult social care
new concerns over the quality of apprentices’ education and experience
negative perceptions of social care from members of the general public”

The Leadership Qualities Framework launched – Centre for Workforce Intelligence [UK] – 19 April 2013

The National Skills Academy for Social Care has launched the Leadership Qualities Framework (LQF), described as ‘a one-stop shop for developing yourself, strengthening and differentiating your organisation and providing better services’.

The LQF provides a variety of benefits, as it
| is grounded in everyday practice and behaviours and underpinned by personalisation and co-production
| describes, in a clear and accessible way, what good leadership looks like in different settings and situations
| illustrates the attitudes and behaviours needed for high quality leadership at every level of the sector
| is for everyone in social care: private or not-for-profit sector service providers, large and small organisations, residential and home care providers, local authorities, personal employers and anyone working in the sector, at any level
| goes beyond social care, mirroring the NHS Leadership Framework so that it can be applied in integrated services.

Norman Lamb MP said the following at the launch of the framework.

Great leadership requires the right skills and values. The new leadership qualities framework…is a fantastic step in the right direction. This is about leadership at all levels and care workers leading from the front line. It provides clear guidelines enabling organisations to introduce training”

“On 26 March 2013 the CfWI’s partner organisations Skills for Health and Skills for Care launched guidelines for healthcare support workers who report to nurses or midwives and adult social care workers in England.

The Code describes the standards of conduct, behaviour and attitudes that the public should expect of healthcare support workers. It is based on the principles of protecting the public by promoting best practice.

The National Minimum Training Standards define the minimum knowledge health and care workers must have, irrespective of individual job role. They focus on 10 key knowledge areas and set out what should be covered during a period of induction in the first weeks of employment:

the roles of the healthcare support worker and adult social care worker
your personal development
effective communication
equality, diversity and inclusion
duty of care
safeguarding
person-centred care and support
health and safety
handling information
infection prevention and control.

Care and Support Minister, Norman Lamb, said:

People who use these services expect the staff looking after them to provide safe and compassionate care and this is yet another step towards the better standards everyone expects.

Workforce planning implications and learning points from Francis 2013 – Centre for Workforce Intelligence – February 2013

“This paper is designed to contribute to this effective response by helping senior leaders in health, social care and public health to identify the key workforce implications of the Francis report.  Its purpose is to inform and stimulate discussion on the changes that the Francis report recommends at a strategic level, as well as providing advice to leaders as they consider how to engage staff to bring about individual change in the workforce.

The CfWI will revisit this thinking after the Government response is published, with a specific focus on how we may further support health and social care leaders in identifying workforce implications.

This CfWI paper is not intended to replace an individual’s own reading and consideration of this landmark report (with its executive summary, three volumes and around 1800 pages); it is intended as a distillation of the 290 recommendations from a workforce perspective. We agree that there is much to learn from the narrative of the report and a great deal to reflect on in terms of people’s own work, attitudes and collective culture (Francis 2013, Executive summary, para 111).”

A strategic review of the future healthcare workforce: informing medical and dental student intakes – Centre for Workforce Intelligence [UK] – January 2012

“During December 2011 and January 2012, we interviewed 30 medical stakeholders by telephone to identify the driving forces that may impact the number of medical and dental students that should enter the system in future. The list of interviewed stakeholders can be found on page 56 of this report.

Specifically, we asked the stakeholders to consider the possible technological, economic, environmental, political, social and ethical (TEEPSE) influences of the following question:

‘Thinking up to the year 2040, what factors will influence:
requirements of the future medical workforce?
future medical workforce numbers and proportions?’

Our team collated the factors identified – including ‘maverick’ views – and this report contains the outputs of the interview activity.

This horizon scanning work will then feed into the scenario generation and modelling phases of the project. An interim report for the whole project will be available at the end of June 2012 and a final report in the autumn.”

Integrated Care for Older People: Examining Workforce and Implementation Challenges – Centre for Workforce Intelligence – June 2011

Integrated Care for Older People: Examining Workforce and Implementation Challenges – Centre for Workforce Intelligence – June 2011

Extract from the foreword:

“This report is the first in a series investigating the workforce implications of moving towards an integrated health and social care system. It is widely acknowledged that integration is key to delivering more effective and efficient care, and the workforce will play a huge role in achieving this goal. But what does integration really mean for those working in health and social care? Do they need different skills and training? Is care likely to be delivered in a different setting? And how can we manage changing perceptions and expectations? These are some of questions that this project has begun to answer.

To date, our research has focussed mainly on models of care which aim to avoid hospital admission for older people ensuring that patient experience and dignity are not compromised. As yet, we have not covered the detail of specific care pathways such as falls and dementia, but have examined the overall model of care at a number of case study sites that are working towards providing integrated care for older people. By combining this work with already published research, we have identified a number of tentative conclusions about the models’ potential and their high-level workforce implications. This work can be built on through further commissions in 2011 – 2012 (e.g. long term conditions and older people).”

The Centre for Workforce Intelligence

New organisation to help transform NHS and social care workforce planning – UK Dept of Health – 30 March 2010
 
“A new organisation is being set up to help NHS and social care bodies plan their workforce around delivering more productive and people centred care, Health Minister Ann Keen announced today.
 
The Centre for Workforce Intelligence will help the NHS and social care system plan their workforces around shifting resources to the frontline, removing bureaucracy and moving care from hospitals into homes and the community.
 
The commitment to form the Centre was made after a review into the future of the NHS workforce in 2008, ‘A High Quality Workforce’, highlighted the need for an organisation to provide leadership on the quality of workforce planning across the health and social care system.”
