This is your chance to shape commissioning decisions around workforce planning

HEE would like to work with anyone that has a responsibility for workforce planning to address the capacity and capability challenges facing the NHS digital workforce in the next 10 years.

(This might include human resources (HR) and organisational leads in local or regional NHS organisations as well as individual health informatic staff members).

We are looking at three main workforce supply factors affecting the digital technology workforce:

  1. Education and training pipelines
  2. Recruitment and retention
  3. Professional development (reskilling and upskilling).

The aim is to develop a set of national workforce plans for different segments of the digital technology workforce.

  1. Data and information – architecture
  2. Data and information – application
  3. Information and communications technology
  4. Technology-supported organisational transformation.

To participate, please:

  • Submitting case studies, policies or documentation on local or service level supply initiatives relating specifically to the digital technology workforce in your organisation or region.

  • Give feedback on the challenges involved in developing the digital technology workforce

  • Share feedback – including ideas, suggestions, best practice, etc. on the supply factors for each segment of the workforce.

Evidence and any feedback submitted will be treated in confidence and anonymised at the reporting stage of this project. The call for evidence will be open for 6 weeks and closes on 13 June 2021. We will then analyse the information submitted, and if required, seek further details through online surveys, workshops and/or interviews.

For more information around the background of this work, please visit the Health Education England website.

Any questions about this consultation should be sent to Don Liu, HEE Digital Readiness Programme – don.liu@hee.nhs.uk
