Workforce Strategy and Planning
This re-designed and enhanced drop-in service was introduced by East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust to improve access and quality of service for patients with low back pain. The service is run by experienced physiotherapists who offer early assessment advice and reassurance. Waiting times are now minimal, duplicate referrals and unnecessary diagnostics have been vastly reduced, and patient outcomes are good with improved productivity.
Health Education North West is responsible for the education, training and continuing personal development (CPD) of every member of NHS staff, and recruiting for values in the North West.
The careers event was held to showcase career opportunities in Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM subjects).

Opportunities in all these disciplines will be advertised in the next few weeks and the majority of these Apprenticeships are planned to start September 2015.

The core purpose of the Education Commissioning plan is to ensure there is an appropriate supply of clinical staff who have the skills, knowledge, values and attitudes to meet the needs of patients, carers and healthcare employers.
