NHS Providers -
This survey of NHS trust chairs and chief executives has revealed rising concerns over the growing NHS workforce gap. 172 NHS leaders responded to the survey and only 27 per cent of these respondents reported confidence in having the right staff numbers, quality and skill mix to deliver high-quality care. The report provides examples of where trusts are improving quality of care and increasing productivity despite financial constraints and growing demand. The report highlights that trusts are able to deliver when given achievable tasks but warns that the sustainability of services is at risk.
