ECC Annual Conference and AGM 4 March 2014 Dean Royles Chief Executive, NHS Employers @NHSE_Dean @NHSEmployers
The NHS Three important contextual issues: The financial challenge The report into Mid-Staffordshire Hospital NHS Foundation Trust Demographics and social media To deal with these externally we need good understanding internally.
What does the 1.3m NHS workforce look like? 77% of the NHS workforce are female (closer to 80% for nursing staff) 24,000 staff have a declared disability (2% of the workforce) – but 60% not disclosed or undeclared 389,000 staff (30% of the workforce) are aged 50 or over. Rises for some groups such as consultants (37%) Around 15% of the NHS workforce are from black and minority ethnic backgrounds
The financial challenge £ 1997 2011 2015 Gap = £20 bn expenditure projected expenditure based on current trends income projected real income based on CSR cash productivity
Employee engagement The evidence tells us that staff with high levels of engagement, who feel their health and wellbeing are important, display a number of positive behavioural traits: increased commitment a belief in their organisation a desire to work to make things better suggesting improvements working well in a team helping colleagues a likelihood to ‘go the extra mile’
