The National Workforce Assurance Tool
Workforce Assurance is the process of managing risk and assuring that the composition of the workforce delivers safe, effective and high quality care. The workforce assurance tool was developed to help support this process. The project team responsible for development had representatives from the ten Strategic Health Authorities (SHAs) and the Department of Health (DH). Each SHA formed their own internal project team to engage locally with clinicians and managers and contributed to the development of the metrics within the tool.
