NHS Evidence - health management - Fri, 28/08/2015 - 12:43

Department of Health (DH) -
The Global Health Security Agenda is a US-led initiative to make progress, through international collaboration, toward a world safe and secure from infectious disease and other health threats. The UK volunteered to pilot an assessment tool designed to assess how countries are performing against the national actions and targets set out in 11 action packages spanning prevention, detection and response preparedness. This report follows a self-assessment and a week-long assessment visit to the UK in June 2015 by a panel of international experts. The report concludes that, overall, the UK has demonstrated a strong baseline position across all areas. One key area of strength was the cross-government and organisational coordination and response to the Ebola crisis.

Horizon 2035 - future demand for skills: initial results

NHS Evidence - health management - Fri, 28/08/2015 - 12:31

Centre for Workforce Intelligence (CfWI) - 
This report outlines the interim findings from Horizon 2035, a piece of work which aims to consider how a series of challenges and opportunities may combine in the future and impact the health, public health and social care workforce. It finds that based on our current understanding, we are projecting that demand for health and care skills could grow more than twice as fast as overall population growth by 2035. Much of this growth is driven by increasing healthcare and support demands associated with long term conditions. This relates both to the ageing population and a projected increase in prevalence across age groups. The initial results also suggest that the future profile of demand may be profoundly different to the picture of demand today. For example, growth in demand for lower ‘levels’ of skill – such as those associated with unpaid care, support carers and NHS bands 1-4 - are projected to substantially outstrip growth in demand for higher skill levels associated with medical and dental professionals.
