www.hee.nhs.uk Changing roles, skills and knowledge Financial pressures are driving improved productivity and the streamlining and co-ordination of services Advances in technology and the way care is delivered are changing the roles of scientists Scientists increasingly integrated into patient pathways and working as part of the multi disciplinary team Flexible working across specialisms and care settings in roles and places of work largely unfamiliar to the workforce today Speeding up of adoption of new technology and a step change in technology and efficiency New roles focused on technology Genomic medicine and bioinformatics impacting on the whole scientific workforce
www.hee.nhs.uk Education and training Investment in CPPD essential to maintaining competence in a fast changing environment Modular, fast turnaround development programmes so workforce is able to adapt the application of its skills and knowledge quickly Introduction of programmes that will equip the workforce to face the challenges ahead, particularly the leadership challenge Increase in clinical training capacity
www.hee.nhs.uk Leadership The future workforce needs strong leadership to meet the challenges facing it Leaders need to : – focus on changing culture and building the confidence of their colleagues – be influential and have a strong voice, leading across a range of professions and breaking down barriers – provide strong scientific leadership and professional accountability to avoid fragmentation of the workforce – be clinical experts and innovators driving the adoption of new technology and involved in service development – encourage and lead research within a culture of evidence based care The leaders of 2030 are entering the workforce now
www.hee.nhs.uk It is important for scientists to act now New technology will have a major impact on service efficiency and the scientific workforce need to be at the forefront, driving its introduction Scientists will be have an essential role in quality assuring new services in primary care and the community to ensure the safety and accuracy of those services The Modernising Scientific Careers education and training programmes and career development framework enables scientists to seize the opportunities
www.hee.nhs.uk Cultural change, a different way and mind set going forward Flexible working across specialisms and care settings Support for service reconfiguration Quality assurance of diagnostics in less traditional settings outside the hospital Dissemination of innovative technologies at home and internationally Advocacy and leadership for healthcare science across the complex stakeholder landscape
