Did you know?

A workforce survey from the Royal College of Nursing’s information and learning team (RCNi) found that the primary reason NHS nurses leave their jobs is owing to administrative burden.

Of 2,797 nurses who responded to the survey in October 2023, 42% said they spend at least half of their working week on non-clinical tasks, such as responding to complaints and ordering transport.

A report from business solutions firm SPS, published on 11 June 2024, says that these admin tasks could potentially be managed using digital solutions.
