Sustaining our health and care workforce

Event placeholder

NHSE’s third virtual workforce supply conference will take place on Wednesday 6 September 2023, bringing together professionals from the health and care sector, HR, workforce, education and organisational development.

The NHS Long Term Workforce Plan 2023 has been published and sets out a number of ambitions for the future of the NHS workforce. This conference aims to help employers start thinking about how they can work towards these goals and reaffirm that we are in this together. Our speakers will share a wealth of good practice to inspire you to better train, retain and reform your workforce.

Join us for a thought-provoking event featuring insightful presentations and panel discussions across a number of different topics:

  • Recruitment initiatives, from the international to the hyper-local.
  • The importance of apprenticeships to the health and care sector.
  • Work experience pathways and school engagement.
  • Allied health professional recruitment and retention.
  • New ways of working, system working and anchor institutions.
  • Widening participation by understanding your local communities.
  • Career development to aid retention of our workforce.

Organisations from across the system will be speaking on their initiatives to diversify their workforces and adopt new ways of working that meet the commitments of the NHS Long Term Workforce plan. There will be a focus on system working and how to encourage participation from local communities, bringing benefits to the wider community beyond health and care. We will also hear from those with lived experience of entering the health and care workforce from a variety of different backgrounds.

The conference offers attendees the opportunity to gain practical insights applicable to your organisation, the opportunity to network with colleagues from across the system, and an understanding of trends shaping the future of workforce supply so we hope to see you there.
