13 International Health Leadership Programme SO FOND OF TARGETS

14 International Health Leadership Programme

15 PROGRESS CHECK… 194,000 more staff in last three years Doubling in applicants and 60+% more trainees Explosion in new roles –Delegated tasks e.g. prescribing –Extended roles e.g. nurse endoscopist –Completely new roles e.g. emergency care practitioner Positive staff survey results Lower vacancy and sickness absence rates Over 95% of staff on new pay systems But workforce is just an enabler…

16 International Health Leadership Programme IMPROVED RESULTS 98% of casualty patients being seen and treated within 4 hours Inpatient waiting times down from 24 to 6 months Waiting times for heart bypass operations down to 3 months from 2 years Deaths from breast cancer falling faster than anywhere in the world Declining mortality rates from cancer, heart disease and suicide

17 International Health Leadership Programme CHANGING CONTEXT From benevolent producerism to top-down control to self-improving systems System reform: patient choice, tariff + competition Financial pressures and funding slowdown from 2008 Workforce must respond to new policies –Patient-led NHS –Health protection and prevention –Shift from secondary to primary care –Integration with local government and social care –Electronic patient record

18 International Health Leadership Programme THE TEAM HAS A NEW OWNER

19 International Health Leadership Programme HALF-TIME TEAM TALK Build on the successes of last 5 years –Better recruitment, retention and return –Model Employer, Skills Escalator and new roles –Reduced vacancies and sickness absence –A more confident HR function (EUWTD and Agenda for Change) Respond to the financial environment –Integration of activity, finance and workforce planning –Shift from ‘More Staff’ to ‘Working Differently’ –Do the things that we know will work Deal with culture and behaviour

20 International Health Leadership Programme CULTURE AND VALUES Challenge of personalised care, choice, competition, a ‘subsidised’ private sector, patients as ‘customers’ Could the biggest obstacle be NHS staff? If so what does HR do about it? Need to both adjust and go with the grain –Staff have strong values about patients –Pre-registration and undergraduate training –Recruitment, selection and induction –Post-registration and other training –Knowledge and Skills Frameworks

21 International Health Leadership Programme HR HAS THE TOOLS

28 CONCLUSION From “last chance saloon” to a “New NHS” HR aligned and realigned to overall policy HR must help shape the patient-led NHS HR must add value to the NHS World class NHS needs world class HR One of the world’s biggest employers – want to be one of the world’s best employers First half tough; second half will be tougher

29 International Health Leadership Programme HR STRATEGY - TIME TO GET JOINED UP AGAIN

30 International Health Leadership Programme THANK YOU

31 International Health Leadership Programme SOME QUESTIONS HR – separate function or core managerial skill? Health staff – cost or asset? Raising morale – sentimentality or good business sense? Is there a causal link between staff satisfaction and patient satisfaction? If so, which way does it work? What do managers want from HR?
