Health Education England (HEE) partnering with the NWISDN would like CIOs, CNIOs, CCIOs and CXIOs with their digital and informatics teams to help us plan for the current and future workforce by engaging with two projects initiated by the HEE Digital Readiness Programme

The webinar will aim to introduce the work and focus on two main areas:

  1. Operational workforce planning for the current workforce: The NWISDN will talk about their annual workforce audit, the benefits for you as an end user in participating in this data collection exercise as this is rolled out nationally to NHS providers in 2020.
  2. Strategic workforce planning for the future workforce: Building on HEE’s recent scenario planning workshops in May and June on The Future Informatician, we would like to share our work to date and introduce a demand forecasting tool, to help us shape the workforce requirements for the future. Post webinar, we would then be looking for a representative sample (e.g. 15 to 20) Trusts to engage in a Delphi size exercise. Details of the survey will be circulated after the workshop.
