Where next for NHS pay?

15 Jun 2022
Theatre 3 - 3A

This session, hosted by the Health Foundation, will explore the impact of the current pay determination system for NHS and social care staff.

Hear from Professor James Buchan, Senior Fellow from the Health Foundation’s REAL Centre, who will share insights from new analysis which will put into context how funding constraints, inflation and the cost of living crisis may impact NHS pay, and its implications for the stability of the future workforce.

We will follow that with an interactive session, supported by other expert speakers, holding an active discussion to explore the implications of this for recruitment and retention approaches across the health and care sector, and the role of pay as part of future workforce strategies.
