Regional workshops will aim to bring together workforce and procurement professionals to share learning

NHS Workforce Alliance will host two regional workshops in June which will bring together NHS organisations from across the North of England to discuss common challenges and share good practice.

The workshops will include our first ever event in the North East, taking place at the Copthorne Hotel, Newcastle, on the 25th June. There will also be an event at The OEC, Sheffield, on 4th June, which will be the latest in a series of events we have held for NHS organisations in Yorkshire and the Midlands.

Both events will give our customers a chance to focus on good practice and develop solutions that support you in managing your temporary staffing spend more effectively.

Representatives from the Alliance will be in attendance at both events to update you on our recent work, regional trends and analysis.

We will also have senior representatives from NHS England to provide both national and regional workforce policy updates, and there will be time for round table discussions on key challenge areas so you can collaborate with your peers on solutions to pertinent problems.
