Strategic review of the future healthcare workforce: Informing medical and dental student intakes
This report describes the work carried out by the CfWI in support of the Health and Education National Strategic Exchange (HENSE) review group’s recommendations on medical and dental student intakes.
The review is driven by the need to provide sustainable, high-quality healthcare for patients, and therefore the need to ensure effective longer-term workforce planning and better decision making. The CfWI previously forecast medical workforce supply to the year 2020 based on the current workforce and training pipeline, i.e. those already in the system. A new approach is needed to support decisions that impact further into the future.
