Solving the Workforce Crisis in Healthcare with Jon Ashworth MP and Dr Mark Britnell

The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) is delighted to host two keynote speeches, on the Workforce Crisis in Healthcare, by Jon Ashworth MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Health and Dr Mark Britnell, KPMG’S global healthcare expert and author.

This will take place on 27th March, 11.00am-12.30pm at IPPR, 14 Buckingham Street, London WC2N 6DF.

Mark's new book, Human: Solving the Global Workforce Crisis in Healthcare (Oxford University Press), which releases in March, highlights how this crisis is currently being felt across some of the world’s leading health systems and boldly offers 10 solutions to navigate a serious workforce deficit in order to provide adequate healthcare for 8.5 billion by 2030. As one of the foremost global experts on healthcare bringing together 30 years experience from 77 countries, Mark’s unparalleled experience in NHS management and in health systems around the world gives him a unique authority and insight into the challenges of the future of healthcare staffing across the globe.

With over 100,000 vacancies across the NHS and the Dido Harding review into NHS workforce, this event will discuss priorities for ensuring the NHS has the staff for the future. The Shadow Health Secretary’s speech will outline the key tests for the Government's NHS staffing plan.
