According to King’s Fund UK report, published in November 2018, the workforce challenges in the National Health Service (NHS) in England (excluding Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) now present a greater threat to health services. Across NHS trusts there is a shortage of more than 100,000 staff. Based on current trends, it is projected that the gap between staff needed and the number available could reach almost 250,000 by 2030. If the emerging trend of staff leaving the workforce early continues and the pipeline of newly trained staff and international recruits does not rise sufficiently, this number could be more than 350,000 by 2030.
