Join our free South West NHS workforce resourcing meeting, on 31 October 2017.

The purpose of this meeting is to connect existing networks to explore the principles of workforce management, and how best local trusts can share internal resources. The primary focus of this particular meeting is around process efficiencies and cost reduction in the temporary staffing arena. This meeting will provide clear direction and instruction for trusts to reduce costs through the establishment of internal banks for all categories, and how these can be used in a collaborative manner.
