UK’s New Plan To Meet The Workforce Shortage In NHS
Did you know the NHS, a publicly-funded healthcare system, is nearing its 75th anniversary? The latest projections indicate a deficit of 360,000 workers by 2037. Here are the reasons for the estimated workforce shortage;
- Ageing population
- Inadequate training of healthcare professionals in the country
- Challenges in retaining the existing staff
In light of this issue, the government introduced a new plan recently to help NHS in England obtain over 300,000 additional qualified nurses and doctors. Needless to say, the new plan is aimed at overcoming the chronic shortage of healthcare professionals.
