From the Semantic Web to social machines: A research challenge for AI on the World Wide Web
Workforce planning for the NHS is a large undertaking. The NHS in England employs approximately 1.3 million staff, 70 per cent of recurrent NHS costs relate to staffing, and more than £4 billion is spent annually on staff training. This report considers the degree to which NHS workforce planning in England is likely to support the delivery of a workforce that is fit for the future. To inform this assessment, we examine current developments at national and regional level, highlight relevant international experience, and propose ways in which planning could be made more effective.
