Horizon 2035: Health and Care Workforce Futures
Horizon 2035: Health and Care Workforce Futures is an initiative from the Horizon Scanning team to engage various sector experts and consider different workforce futures over the next two decades. This work aims to inform England’s health and care system to ensure actions are taken to meet the workforce planning challenges facing them.
The work, commissioned by the Department of Health, is open to any interested health and care professionals who wish to be involved. Key research questions that Horizon 2035: Health and Care Workforce Futures aims to address include the following:
- What are the main factors at play in (and around) the workforce, including the strength of public finances and demographic change? How do they interact and what is their relative impact?
- How do these different futures combine to create detailed future scenarios for the health, care and public health workforce?
- How should we conceptualise the current and future workforce?
