How does having a recruitment mindset support safe staffing levels in your hospital?

This interactive session, hosted by NHS Professionals, will share practical insights into four of the pillars behind sustainable, scalable, healthcare recruitment:

Understanding the flexible workforce

  • Who are they and what do they really want?


  • Are our technology platforms people focused enough – and who really has the time to mystery shop?

Learning and development (L&D)

  • It’s what flexible workers want – but do they have access?
  • What difference would opening up L&D make to them – and to your shift fill?

Framework agency management

  • Downward pressure on agency spend, but upward pressure on patient need. How can flexible workers fill the shift gap?

This session is supported by NHS Professionals.
