State of the Workforce Survey


By Skills for Health | 7 February 2024

Since 2010, Skills for Health, the Sector Skills Council for Health, have funded a national biennial research project to identify the health and care system’s most pressing challenges. 

More than 1,500 NHS staff responded to our latest survey, which analyses barriers to training and development, resilience across the workforce, emerging skills needs, compassionate leadership and perceptions of inclusion. 

Responses were from a range of areas, differing levels of seniority with varied occupations, allowing for a diverse range of responses and views.
